Template Updates April 2018

Clinical Templates


The link to SCI-Diabetes login page has been updated.

The Diabetes, Type 2 Management Clinical Guideline has been updated.

The background pages have been updated in respect of Driving details, Erectile Dysfunction, Renal Function Information, Recommended Medication and Ramadan and Fasting.


A Read Code field has been added to show when the Pneumococcal vaccination is not available.  The code cannot be added through the template however will display when entered in the patients notes.  When adding this READ code “8B385 Drug not available-out of stock” additional information should be recorded in the free text field stating it is the Pneumococcal vaccination.  This will result in practices not being penalised for the vaccination not being available.

Learning Disability

A new diagnosis code “Congenital Cytomegalovirus Infection” has been added.

Local LD Support Team, dental referral information and bowel screening booklets have been updated in the background web pages.

Drug Misuse

A new READ code field has been added to record discharge code and a new Guideline icon has been added linking to the Addiction Service Prescribing Guidelines.

Drug details have been added to the background web pages.

House of Care

All results letters have been slightly amended.

Background web pages

Information has been updated where appropriate, regarding guidelines and patient information which can be accessed here.

Please also note the GG&C Managed Clinical Networks web pages are a good source for information and guidelines which can be accessed here.


MSD have recently informed NHSGG&C they will no longer provide support and development in respect of their software.   In order to minimise disruption to practices, support for the use of the templates will be provided directly by NHSGG&C on an interim basis.  Over the coming months we will review these arrangements and the longer term use of the templates and support for practices.   

We would ask Practices to bear with us while trying to resolve any issues and would therefore ask that you continue to log any Helpdesk calls as normal.

We hope that the above information is helpful, but should you have further queries please contact the IT Mentoring team (through Daisy) regarding technical matters, the GMS Team on general matters and the Practice Nurse Support and Development team for clinical matters.


Please e mail [email protected] if you have any questions or suggestions regarding this page.
