When a CONSULTANT conducts an out-patient clinic jointly with another consultant (or by a doctor representing the consultant), the second consultant is a SHARED CLINIC CONSULTANT.
You should not record a clinic as a shared clinic when two or more CONSULTANTS hold clinics at the same LOCATION and time specifically in order to allow PATIENTS to go from one consultant to another, even if they share a single list of PATIENTS. These are separate CONSULTANT CLINICS.
