Carers for Adults on PKB
It is important that all of your patients have their records created on PKB. This includes any that for whatever reason may not be able to, or may not wish to, access their record themselves. It also includes adults with safeguarding flags as these are the ones who may most need their data to be shared between clinicians. There is a separate page about registering children and their carers.
Access: set up professionals
Ensure that all of your professionals are added to your organisation’s umbrella/patient records team with zero access this can be done easily via a CSV upload - instructions for this are here
It is also important to register carers with their own patient record in PKB. If you don't, someone else might set up a separate account for the health of the carer, and the carer has to manage one login as a patient and another as a carer. It is efficient to use the identity verification process of the carer to also verify their identity as a patient. And a carer is better able to engage as a carer is they can also manage their own health as a patient on PKB.
