How to create a group for Coronavirus Vaccination Campaign

< All Topics

To create a group, follow these steps:

  • Log in to myGP Connect system
  • Click on Campaigns tab found on the left-hand side menu
  • Click on Groups
  • You will be directed to the Groups page

Here you can create a group from your clinical search. Please do the following:

  • Click the Create Group button
  • You will see the Create Recipient Group pop-up box

  • Name your group (e.g. Coronavirus Vaccination Campaign) in the Group Name field
  • Choose from Group Type options
  • Then click Add Recipients
  • This will bring you to the Edit Group pop-up box

On this page we have the option to add in your clinical search group of patients. To add patients, you can do it via these different methods:

For Emis users: add patients via Patient ID

  • Paste the Patient ID numbers into the Patient ID box on the lower left
  • Click the Move Selected arrow to the lower right
  • Your patient will appear in the Recipient box to the right
  • Click Save

For TPP/SystmOne users: add patients via patient NHS number

  • Select the Patient NHS Number option from the lower left box
  • Paste your NHS numbers into the NHS Number box on the lower left
  • Click the Move Selected arrow to the lower right
  • Your patient will appear in the Recipient box to the right
  • Click Save

This will save your Group as an entry on the main page.

Please Note: When you move your patients over to Recipient, a button named Excluded will appear. This will show you all non-mobile registered users that will not receive this campaign message. You will need to contact these patients by other means (e.g. email, home phone call).
