    Cheque be issued

    "We want patient details so that the claim can be processed and cheque be issued". Please check. We don't have to use "Can" twice. We can use "be" instead of "can" second time, right?

    Re: Cheque be issued

    We want the patient's details so that the claim can be processed and the cheque issued.
    Note the articles. You can omit "can be" the second time.

    Re: Cheque be issued

    I would add a comma between 'cheque' and 'issued' in the above post, but I am not a teacher.

    Re: Cheque be issued

    That comma would be wrong, Matthew.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Cheque be issued

    Note also that cheque is the BrE spelling. If you're writing for an AmE audience, use 'check'.
