Using the online patient registration system

When originally built, the site was intended to allow the registration of patients online using a comprehensive patient questionnaire developed by Manchester Royal Infirmary.  Over time, the questionnaire has become out dated, and the structure of the questionairre made it somewhat cumbersome to add a patient, particularly in the absence of all the requested information.
For this reason we included a downloadable pdf of the currnent questionairre instead.  This obviates original patient data management functions of the site but does enable simple access to a current questionairre for use within a clinic.
We are revising the site to enrich the content which will ultimately result in the removal of the online patient questionairre but have left if for now as some users are making good use of it.
We will continue to secure all submitted data but recommend that new users adopt the pdf version ofthe questionairre instead.
