Many thanks Giuseppe I really appreciate your advice
I keep the original consultation form along with notes in transparent ring-binder sleeves in a file, one per client. It's then easy just to refer, update and file away. I use a photocopied diagram of a body outline, front and back view, on which to note any problems - eg circle around left shoulder and a notes to the side. I haven't got anyone to fill in whole new forms -just updates especially on any medication etc. I don't use the pc option a) due to regs regarding data protection etc, and also as if I'm taking notes during or just after a consultation, it's far quicker to write on paper, and your keyboard doesn't suffer from oily residue from your hands!
Thank you Amnada that sounds like the best way forward. Recently spoke to someone else who updates onto a password protected USB stick and then backs up on office file, this seems simple but as you say the regulations are such that there could be loads of red tape not sure I'll ever be ready for that.
To start with I think I'll carry on writing my notes onto extra sheets and adding to my files. I like the idea of the diagram too, I think that would be very beneficial.
Thank you both so much for your help x
