Opening Letters

 

To open an existing patient letter:

1.      From within the Clinical Window, select the Letters tab.


By default, items are displayed in order of date collected.

 

2.      To open a letter, either:

o       Double-click the letter, or

o       Select Edit > Select, or

o       Right-click the letter and select View from the menu that appears.

 

3.      The Letter Writer opens, and your letter is displayed, ready for editing.

If a letter is edited within 7 days of being saved initially, you are given the option of either replacing the existing copy or saving as a new letter. This allows complex letters to be worked on over several days. After 7 days the letter is automatically saved as a new letter.
