To open an existing patient letter:
within the Clinical Window, select
the Letters tab.
By default, items are displayed in order of date collected.
2. To open a letter, either:
o Double-click the letter, or
o Select Edit > Select, or
o Right-click the letter and select View from the menu that appears.
3. The Letter Writer opens, and your letter is displayed, ready for editing.
If a letter is edited within 7 days of being saved initially, you are given the option of either replacing the existing copy or saving as a new letter. This allows complex letters to be worked on over several days. After 7 days the letter is automatically saved as a new letter.
