How to create a Group

You are here:

In order to send out a campaign message, you will need to create a group first. The group can be made up from any mobile registered user within the myGP Connect system.

In order to create a group, follow these steps:

  • Log in to your myGP Connect system
  • Click on Campaigns found on the left-hand side menu
  • Click on Groups
  • You will be directed to the Groups page

Here you can create a group from scratch. Please do the following:

  • Click the Create Group button
  • You see the Create Recipient Group pop-up box

  • Name your group in the Group Name field
  • Choose from Group Type options
  • Then click Add Recipients
  • This will bring you to the Edit Group pop-up box

On this page we have the option to add the specific patients we want to message. To add patients, you can do it via these different methods:

Search patients by name

  • Refer to the Recipient Search field in the top left of page
  • Type patient’s NHS number, first name, or surname into the field
  • You will see the name appear in the People box
  • Highlight the patient name, then click the Move Selected arrow
  • Your patient will appear in the Recipient box to the right
  • Click Save

Add patients via Patient ID (recommended for Emis/Vision users)

  • Copy your patient’s ID numbers from your clinical system
  • Paste the Patient ID numbers into the Patient ID box on the lower left
  • Click the Move Selected arrow to the lower right
  • Your patient will appear in the Recipient box to the right
  • Click Save

Add patients via patient NHS number (recommended for TPP/SystmOne users)

  • Select the Patient NHS Number option from the lower left box
  • Copy your patient’s NHS numbers from your clinical system
  • Paste the NHS numbers into the NHS Number box on the lower left
  • Click the Move Selected arrow to the lower right
  • Your patient will appear in the Recipient box to the right
  • Click Save

This will save your Group as an entry on the main page.
