What’s new: Queensland vaccination update

GuildCare NG has released an update to its vaccination recording service in-line with the vaccination policy changes made by the Queensland government.

Trained pharmacists in Queensland can now administer the Meningococcal ACWY vaccine to patients aged over 10 years old and for the first time, will also be able to administer the Pneumococcal vaccine to patients aged over 16 years old.

What’s new:
Leave Certificates redesigned

GuildCare NG has redesigned the layout of both its Carers’, Personal Leave Certificates and their corresponding Certificate Request Forms.

The new layout is easier to read and includes clearer:

  • Pharmacy branding
  • Patient details
  • Relevant pharmacist details
  • Legal disclaimers

What’s changed: Bulk Messaging – SMS rate notification

When sending bulk messages to patients via SMS, we will notify you of the potential charges to minimise bill shock when settling payments.

Prior to scheduling a SMS bulk message, there will now be a pop up to alert you that the message will cost up to $0.12 per standard SMS as per the following image.

Bulk Message fees

Below are few points that you should keep in mind when sending a bulk message via SMS:

  • GuildCare NG allows you to send SMS messages that exceed the standard character limit of 150 (Non standard SMS message).
  • For any SMS that contains 150 standard characters or less one standard fee of up to 0.12c per message is charged.
  • For any SMS that contains more than 150 standard characters an additional fee of 0.12c is incurred for each group of 153 standard characters or part thereof;
  • The bulk messages feature allows you to send an SMS that contains non-standard characters.
  • Non-standard characters will account for 2 standard characters.
  • Standard characters include those such as letters (e.g. a-z), numbers (i.e. 0-9), common English punctuation (e.g. full stop, comma, ?, !) and symbols (e.g. $, &).
  • Non-standard characters include non-English characters such as ć, â and ë and special characters (i.e. ^ { } \ [ ~ ] | €).
