What is COVID-19 triaging?

Given the presence of coronavirus in the UK, we've built a tool that helps practices triage patients who have booked face-to-face appointments before they come in. This can be used to screen patients due to visit the practice and help decrease the risk of potentially spreading the virus.

πŸ’¬ Enrolment SMS:

Once the patient has accessed the link, they will be prompted to enter their date of birth in order to access the questionnaire πŸ“†
