Confirm patient details
Patient data can sometimes need to be updated, if they have moved or changed phone number.For this reason, it is good practice to confirm the details in the system with the patient directly and then update the system if required.
Patients will need to prove their identity to access their education articles, so it’s important the patient details stored in the system are correct.

When you have finished updating the information, click the “Update Patient Details” button at the bottom of the form.
