1. What is the difference between ‘search’ and ‘browse’?
‘Search’ allows you to look through the online archive of documentation by entering a specific term. This term can be a name, for example the name of a patient, or a word that you wish to search the documents for. You can also search the entire website using the global site search, visible in the top right-hand corner of this website.
‘Browse’ allows you to look through the disclosed material, which is grouped according to certain predefined headings. You can browse:
by contributor (by the organisation or individual who contributed the material)
by investigation (those investigations referred to frequently in the Report).
Please note that ‘search by the name of a patient’ is similar to ‘browse by contributor’ and ‘browse by investigation’ because it is a guided way of filtering the documentation. However, to search by the name of a patient you are required to enter the name of a patient, rather than view a defined list that you can select from. This is to provide some privacy to the patients who have been named in the Report.
