Catch-all Search

Catch-all rules for the Check Capacity Summary search

The Catch-all search is invoked if, following the filtering processes, there are fewer than two remaining services that can be returned. This is in order to provide the patient with a choice of services. The following rules are applied:

  • If 1 or fewer services match, up to the nearest two services profiled with the Service Type ‘Emergency Department’ are returned.
  • The catch-all service(s) must be within the default 60km search distance; any distance passed in as a search parameter is ignored
  • The catch-all service must be Active
  • Where there is one matching service, if one of the catch-all services is a duplicate of this return, it will not be included
  • Where there is one matching service, this is displayed before the catch-all return(s) and the catch-all services are displayed in ascending distance order
  • The Service Name is suffixed with ‘(Catch-all)’
