During a treatment, the practitioner can create a GP letter. This letter informs the patient’s GP about the treatment that was performed.
You can set up a default clinic template for GP letters. Additionally, you can choose for each treatment whether a GP letter is created by default, and supply a treatment-specific text.
During a treatment, the practitioner can edit the GP letter that is generated from the templates. Editing allows the practitioner to add relevant information about the specific treatment of the patient.
Furthermore, the treatment summary or operative report (if set up) can be attached to the GP letter, if you want to provide more information to the GP.
To edit the GP letter templates, open menu > Record Settings > Records > GP Letter in the app.

Click one of your treatment to set up the GP letter for that specific treatment:
Tick the checkbox to enable creating a GP letter for that treatment. If enabled, you can enter a treatment-specific text that will be included in the GP letter.
When multiple treatments are performed at the same time, the treatment-specific texts will be combined automatically in the GP letter of that record.
To always attach the treatment summary or operative report to GP letters, open menu > Record Settings > Records > Record Defaults. At the bottom of the page, you can choose whether the treatment summary and operative report should be attached to the GP letter by default. This choice can be overridden when creating a GP letter during a treatment.
To edit the email templates that are used when sending the GP letter, open menu > Clinic Settings > Email & SMS Templates > Records in the app.

The template GP Letter to GP is used when sending the GP letter directly to a patient’s GP.
