Question
I have a new patient that requires a consultation via the CAS module in Choose Pharmacy. They are a refugee temporarily staying in the area and do not yet have an NHS number or registered with a GP. How can I provide the service?

Answer
In the user guide for CAS we have this

 

So, you can register through a manual entry of patient data. If they have no GP at the time, the GP not known option can be selected. The consultation will still be recorded in Choose.
