How to search for a patient

It is good practice to search for a patient record before starting to create a new patient on the system. The patient record might already exist in PKB.

You will only be able to find records that your organisation has access to. These are records that were created in your organisation’s network or that the patient has shared with your organisation. (In the future we will provide the ability to search for records outside your organisation’s network. Please subscribe to our blog to keep up to date with changes).

To search for a patient in your organisation select your organisation from the ‘from’ dropdown as in the screenshot.

You can search for a patient record by specifying one or more of:

  • Name
  • Date of Birth
  • Patient identifier - National identifier e.g. NHS number in the UK, Organisation or Team ID
