Ardens has developed a clinical template to aid practice staff with guidance on the required coding for the Network Contract DES requirements.


Access the template in the patient record using one of the following ways:

  • Click on the Run Template option within a consultation.
  • Click on the Add > Data using Template option outside of a consultation. 


Search for the "Network DES Contract DES template" using the search field provided and once located double click on the template to launch.


Once launched, the template will display as follows:



Each requirement for the DES is broken down by pages on the left-hand side.


Selecting the relevant page will give further details on the coding requirements.



For more detailed reviews and assessments, we recommend referring to the separate corresponding Ardens templates which are detailed in each page.
