Setting a Head of Family allows all members of a family to be linked together. This is particularly useful if you wish to view lists of all members of a certain family (maybe during consultation). The Head of Family can be set when adding a new patient or when editing existing patient details.

1.     Open the Patient Details window, and select the Pt Details tab.

2.     Click in the Head of Family section.


3.     The Select Patient from List window appears. Select the patient you wish to mark as the Head of the Family, and click to confirm.


Although only patients with the same surname are initially listed, you can choose any patient in the database by typing the name in the field provided and selecting from the list. To remove the Head of Family, click the Set button and select the patient's own name as the Head of Family.
