As you will be aware, we have recently reported a potential issue with the Emergency Care Summary (ECS) consent status for patients that have been deducted then subsequently re-registered at the practice. When a patient is transferred out, the consent status for ECS is set to "Refused", and should a patient be re-registered, the consent status remains set to "Refused" and must be changed manually. As practices may not have been aware of this, some patients may have an ECS consent status of "Refused", which was not intended. In response to this, we have written a utility which reverses the consent status for patients who have been erroneously set to ECS Refused.
