Reasonable Adjustment Flag

The reasonable adjustment flag is a national record which indicates that reasonable adjustments are required for a patient. NHS England and NHS Digital have built a reasonable adjustment flag in the NHS Spine to enable health and care professionals to record, share and view patients’ reasonable adjustments across the NHS. This enables staff and services to carry out this anticipatory duty wherever the patient is treated.

I really like the simplicity and effectiveness of the Content Creator. It has all the features and functions you would expect from any current elearning authoring tool.
