This applies for both Clinipad & Patient Portal FP17PR / FP17PRW & GP17PR Forms.
Before an NHS COT the patient must sign a FP17pr/GP17pr form to consent to being examined by a dentist and state any exemptions they have. These forms will stay in your EXACT Database but sometimes you will be required to produce this by the BSA/PSD.
You need to navigate to the NHS FP17/GP17 window which can be done in a number of ways with 2 examples below:
Open the patient file and click on Patient Transactions (£ symbol), highlight the invoice for that NHS COT and then click on FP17/GP17 button.
Or: Open the patient file and go to the chart tab. Go to the History page (H) button, highlight any treatment that was done as part of that COT and click on the FP17/GP17 button in bottom left.
Click on the FP17/GP17 tab and then select “View Signed FP17PR” form or if in Scotland you can view Part 1 or Part 2 of the GP17PR form.
This will open the PDF which you can then print off or email to the NHS as required.
From version 13.286 and above, when viewing electronically signed NHS forms a new pop-up message will notify users the form has been altered since the date it was originally signed. This is to alert users that the exemptions in Exact may differ from the electronic form being viewed and need to be reviewed.
This error appears when the form saved in the database has been tampered with. For example, by opening the file in the database and editing it manually. If you see this pop-up message you will need to review the course of treatment or claim to confirm what (if any) exemptions or information have been changed. Tampered forms will not update the exemption record or claim in Exact. These records will only change is manually changed in Exact.
This will apply to both Clinipad and Patient Portal forms in England (FP17PR), Wales (FP17PRW), Northern Ireland (HS45PR) and Scotland (GP17PR).
