Practices Trusted Lists

A new feature has been released for Practice accounts to allow them to build their own Trusted Lists of GPs.

Any practice can request a GP to join their Trusted List (an email notification is automatically sent out) and the GP can accept or decline via a simple link in the email.

When a GP joins the Trusted List of a Practice, the practice will be able to maintain governance related information on the GP within their account and filter the general sessional availability screen to show only GPs on their Trusted List.

A GP can join as many Trusted Lists as they wish.
