This article is for practices who are setting up Patient Triage, Accurx's Online Consultation solution 🚑
Once Patient Triage is switched on for your practice, you can find your unique link by...
Click your Initials in the Accurx toolbar, and select "Patient Triage".
On the left-hand side, select 'Set Up Patient Triage', and you'll see your link 👇
This link can then go on your practice website! If you manage the website yourself, simply pop it somewhere visible. If not, pass the link to your IT Team to promote it on the website.
Do you have a website banner I can use?
We're really delighted to offer these website banners for you to use on your website to help promote Patient Triage to your patients! 🎉
Your website provider, or whoever normally updates your practice website, should be able to embed one of the banners with your unique link.
Where else can I put the link?
If you already have direct links to fit notes, test results, and repeat prescriptions, you can add the Patient Triage link at each of these points.
If our banners don't work for your website, you can still use your link with your own button or as a hyperlink. Here are some ideas for where you might like to add your link:
It is worth thinking about one main prominent place for Patient Triage - the more obvious, the easier for patients to find it! Here's a great example 👇
What should the website say?
Please note that reference to 'Accurx' should be avoided, to lessen the risk of patients mistakenly contacting Accurx directly.
We suggest keeping it very simple. For example, a button or link which says 'Contact us online'.
If you would like to provide more information, here's some example text:
You can contact us about a medical, administrative or prescription issue by clicking HERE.
