Error with DMEs ROT email notification

We have recently discovered that the automated emails DMEs receive from SOAR contains an incorrect link. The link was designed to take the DME to a "Pending DME action" page, but it does not. Please visit http://www.appraisal.nes.scot.nhs.uk/news/dme-rot-email-notification.aspx for full details and workaround method.

Sincerest apologies for the confusions this has caused, we will work to amend the email content ASAP.
