General Information about NES for NES Users
NES Gap Catch-Up Utility
These documents contain important information for MedTech users on the Gap catch-up utility.
The practice register exported by the practice to the PHO is loaded into NES each quarter until the practice goes live on NES. Once a practice has gone live, the Gap Catch-Up Utility must be run to ensure all enrolment activity that has occurred in the PMS since the export date until the Go-Live date is updated in NES.
The Gap Catch-Up Utility should only be run once. After it is run, all NES updates should be made from the PMS. If for any reason NES is disabled for a period of time, and enrolment changes occur within the practice during the disablement, the Gap Catch-Up Utility can be run again to capture those changes. These documents also cover the process in those circumstances.

Updating Patient Ethnicity Information
These documents provide information on what you should do when the ethnicity in your Practice Management System is different from the ethnicity shown on the NHI for an existing patient or when the ethnicity on the enrolment form is not the same as the ethnicity shown on the NHI for a new patient.
