Thanks for that. Seems to confirm what I am finding out-it looks to be a very stripped down clean and effective piece of software. I have found one other NHS user thus far via a practice manager forum to whom I shall be speaking to as well hopefully. When you look at the ridiculous prices being charged by big companies flogging expensive hand held machines and big software packages this looks fantastic value in comparison. However you do need to be a relatively confident IT practitioner / self starter whcih is where I wobble a bit.
Can I trouble you with another couple of questions please? Please excuse the newbie nature.
-Is it possible to configure the default priority levels, instead of high, medium, low etc is it possible to change these to 2ww, routine, urgent, insurance etc etc or would you use the prompt to add comments feature? You mentioned being able to cut and paste an x ray report in how did you do this?
-Do you feel the encryption is necessary or are you happy to use the shared folder arrangement? Presumably encryptions means if turned on the the typing pool have to tap in a code every time to open a file?
