For the "tweak" it might help to make clearer that the field two below 
"Emergency contact" intends to capture a within-praxis provider. Also, and 
while I appreciate the focus of GNUmed is family practice, a patient can still 
have a "main" (primary) doctor *outside* of GNUmed and would it be ok to 
disambiguate by replacing

        Primary doctor (screenshot)


        Most responsible in praxis  <--- there is plenty of room to widen the 

and adjust the tooltip to

        Enter or select from among the providers in this GNUmed praxis.


Also, I doubt I am alone in seeing value to input the different doctors (or 
other providers) that a patient has been seeing or has been referred to (even 
if, after a time, the patient discontinues to see some of these people). It is 
embarrassing to re-refer a patient to a doctor when there exists a history that 
the relationship had problems.

One obstacle to decide how to manage this is where in GNUmed to store such 
values. Would it be similar to the drug scheme in which there could be a


which holds listings outside the praxis of


but when one of these professionals would be actually used, would such people 
get added as "Persons" in GNUmed or would these people live only in reference 
tables. What about their addresses and phone numbers etc?
