Updates to the Incident Charts page for Local Administrators

The incident charts page has been updated for local administrators. This is similar to the incidents dashboard but allows the local adminitrator to drill down to the incident subcategories and from there also drill down to individual incidents. The charts can be copied with a screen shot tool or printed out to pdf from most of the latest browsers. These feature has been tested on Chrome and Microsoft Edge.

Updates to the Review Incidents Page for local administrators

An update was released for the Review Incidents page on the 23rd November 2017. This page is only avaiable for local administrators and for individual practice. The new functions allow the incidents to be selected by date and also allows the incident to be edited by the local administrator. Whilst editing there is an extra button at the bottom of the page which allows the local administrator to return to the Review incidents page and the same incident is loaded back for checking. There are additional settings to show that the page has been reviewed at an M & M meeting, or that the page has been archived (without reviewing). The default is "Not reviewed" which is the setting when the incident is first entered.
