Standalone diary

This ‘stand-alone’ booking platform (not integrated into PAS) has been providing primary, secondary and community care appointment booking for the past 7 years across 20+ NHS sites.


This easy to use and intuitive platform requires minimal training for users. With the launch of new in-line training system, clinical teams are now capable of self-train in no longer than 30 minutes.

Key benefits include:

  • New services can be deployed online to the platform in a matter of hours.
  • Capacity can be flexed both quickly and easily – Trusts can simply increase or decrease the number of available appointment slots that are visible to its patients.
  • The platform reduces the need to implement expensive telephone booking services
  • Work-lists generated based on the level of patient bookings made through the platform, allowing clinicians to efficiently monitor and make contact with their patients anytime, anywhere.
