By default, online booking forms are set to make 'General' bookings for patients. You can, however, edit an online booking form to allow patients to select a specific clinician for their appointment. For information on how to create and manage online booking forms, see here.

Note: To edit and manage online booking forms, you must have a role assigned to you that gives you editing permissions for Online booking settings. For more information on roles, see here.

In this article:


Requirements

Before you attempt to edit an online booking form to allow the booking of specific clinicians, you must first make sure that your practice:

  • Has created at least one online booking form

  • Has set up availability for clinicians and locations


Online Booking with a Specific Clinician

When you have met all the requirements, you can edit an online booking form to allow patients to book with a specific clinician, from the Settings page:

1. Go to the Online booking tab.

2. Select the online booking form that you want to edit.

3. Scroll down to the Book practitioner section.

4. Tick Allow patients to book with a specific practitioner.

5. Click Save at the top of the page.

Patients will now have the option to select a specific clinician when making a booking with this online form.

Note: If only one clinician is linked to a certain appointment type, then the patient will only be able to select that clinician for the appointment.
