What's new in May 2021

Find out about the important new features and functionality that have been released for Turas Vaccination Management in May 2021.

25th May 2021

Release 607, Version 2021.5.25.1  

Support Patient Name History

Turas Vaccination Management can now hold details of a patient's previous name.

This doesn’t me you as a user can edit or amend a name. It means that if a citizen updates their name via their GP and this updates the national CHI Database, then at the next vaccination, Turas Vaccination Management will reflect the name change.

The updated name will not flow to the National Clinical Data Store (NCDS) or National Vaccination Scheduling System (NVSS). This is because the unique identifier to map data is the CHI number, rather than name.
