Paediatric records

For children's records, PKB allows coordinators to enforce sharing on behalf of the child. This prevents the patient or carers from overriding sharing with another party.

You have to enter a reason for this and the patient and carer will see the reason in the patient's record.

Any coordinator can remove the enforcement as the situation changes in the future.

To do this click 'Patients'. Search for a patient and click the patient's name. Click 'Edit’ next to a team. At the bottom of the page is the "Child safety" heading - tick the box to prevent patient and carers from editing sharing.

For more information on paediatric record management, including what happens when a patient turns 16, see the guide for professionals and patients.
