Mass registration of patients by home letter
For other ways of registering patients, see the registration page.
You can register a patient using their home address to verify their identity. This is highly scalable allowing you to register lots of patients simultaneously through a mass mailing.
- Each patient receives a letter at their home address. The letter has registration instructions and customised registration codes.
- The user starts registration by visiting joinpkb.com - the website details are provided in the letter.
- The user enters the date of birth of the patient's record. This date is not included in the letter, so this is a check that the person receiving the letter knows the patient's date of birth.
- The user enters the invite code and activation code from the letter. The codes decrypt the patient's record, allowing the person registering to see the record.
- The user enters an email address, password and security question.
- PKB sends a confirmation message to the email address of the user.
- The user clicks the link in the confirmation message, linking the address to the patient's record.
- The user can log into PKB with this email address and password to see their record.
- Include a QR code linking to www.joinpkb.com. You can use sites like https://www.qr-code-generator.com/.
- Describe the benefits your local use of PKB will deliver to patients e.g. "you can now see your appointment letters and laboratory test results".
- Cover the common privacy questions, including GDPR-compliance, of using PKB with NHS data.
- Use a photograph and signature of a local clinical professional.
