How do I add a patient to the waiting list?

WriteUpp provides you with the ability to add patients to a pre-defined 'Waiting List', along with the ability to create and manage your own custom lists.  

You can edit the name and description of the pre-defined list, should you wish to, by going to Settings -> More -> Lists.

Patients can be added to the Waiting List in two places:

  • On the Patient tab of the Patient Summary
  • Via the Active Patient button

Patient Summary

On the Patient tab of the Patient Summary, click on Edit Details to open the record in the editable state:


 Scroll to the Lists section:


Check the box for Waiting List and then Save Changes:


The patient tab in its non-editable state will then be updated to show that the patient is on the Waiting List:



Active Patient Button

The Active Patient dropdown menu contains a shortcut allowing you to add the patient to a list. 

If you only have one list set up,  you'll see a shortcut to add the patient directly to the Waiting List:


Click this link to add the patient to the waiting list and you'll then be taken to the list with the patient added:


If you have multiple lists set up, you'll see an Add to Lists shortcut:


Clicking on this link will open a page displaying all of the lists set up.  From here you'll be able to add the patient to the Waiting List:
