answers e.g. occupation, hobbies etc. This app is to be used in the practice when
a patient comes in:
° the patients can fill in the details themselves, thus saving
your staff time in data entry; or
° your staff can walk to the patient and fill in for them,
thus freeing up the reception counter

Appointment screen, and the information can be transferred into the patient.
