Each Disease being monitored by your surgery will be displayed here. Each Disease has a number of settings which can be updated, depending on how you would like to monitor them:

Let's have a look at the settings for the Asthma register.
Here we can see that patients who are on the Asthma Register for your surgery will get recalled TWELVE months after their last ASTHMA RV. The recall will have a start date THREE months before the deadline, giving the surgery three months to do the recall. As "SYNC" has been selected, the recall will get synced with any other Disease which may be on a patients profile, which has also been set as SYNC. The Disease which has the earlier end date will be the recall date.
For example, Mr John Smith had an Asthma review in March 2022. As we have selected a repeat value of TWELVE months, this means that the recall will have a deadline of March 2023. As we have set a time period of THREE months, the recall will have a start date of January 2023.
If for example Mr John Smith also has another Disease on his profile (for example Hypertension) and if Hypertension also has SYNC selected, but has an earlier deadline (for example Dec 2022), then Mr Smith's Asthma recall will get synced with his Hypertension deadline, so that both his Hypertension and Asthma reviews can be done in one appointment.
The automate checkbox has not been ticked, therefore this disease register will not get automated.
In this example we can see that patients who are on the Methotrexate register will get contacted every THREE months after their last U&Es blood test. The time period is ONE month, meaning that the recall will begin one month prior to the deadline / end date of the recall. As "NO SYNC" has been selected this recall will not get synced with any other recall on the patient's profile.
The surgery has checked the Automate checkbox and set that "5" patients should be contacted per day.
