When a family member turns 18, and for the next 2 years, they will show in red on the family display in the prescription entry screen. 


This enables the pharmacist to view the family information and possibly ask some questions to satisfy themselves that the family member was a child in the family – rather than the head of the family him/herself.


In this case the highlighted patient is clearly a child or grandchild and should be unlinked.

Having selected one of the other family members , F10 Other gives two options to help do this.


F - Next family member

allows the user to cycle to the adolescent


U - Unlink from family

removes the adolescent from the family
