Search for users of Vaccination Management

We received feedback that it was difficult to find manage the users of the Vaccination management Tool. For devolved administrators, a search function has been added to find users of the system. This is particularly helpful in some larger health boards with significant numbers of users. Selecting User Search from the 'User Management' menu will take the user to the User Search page

Once on the user search page there are a variety of search options to help find the user of interest.

View a revision history of a patient vaccination episode

From the Vaccination Details page, the user can now view any revisions made to the record via the Actions panel and the 'View this vaccination’s revisions' button.

This is an extension to the existing 'Revise' functionality, allowing a user to view all the changes that have been made to a vaccination episode.

No previous vaccination record info banner now displayed on the 'Vaccinate Patient' tab

This feature was added based on user feedback - a notification is shown on the Vaccination page to indicate that (based on available records) the patient has not had a previous vaccination.  

This complements the existing notification that is shown when a previous vaccination record is found for a patient
