When on a specific Target page, you can see a list of all uploaded patients and their corresponding NHS number, date of birth, upload date and status. The statuses can be any of the following:

  • Pending: the patient has been uploaded, and the background demographic and appointment checks are in progress before the patient will be invited
  • Invited: the patient has been invited to book an appointment
  • Booked: the patient has booked an appointment
  • Patient Alert: there has been an error in the process, see Patient Alerts for more information
