How can I get this column in my query?

I want to have a column called "patientname" as part of my recordset. My strategy is to include what I'm working on with another query, so the columns have to match.

This works:

This does not:

The challenge is the name. I want to combine the first name (fname) with the last name (lname) and include that as a column in my recordset. But I can't do that without including "patientname" as part of the GROUP BY clause and that's where I'm running into problems.

How can I fix that?

SELECT
'C' AS txntype,
SUM(amount) AS amount,
dos,
pfirst+' '+plast as patientname, //how do I include "patientname" as a column when it's not a field in my table
'Medical Oncology' AS physicianid,
encountercode
FROM [PCAR_Data].[dbo].[txn]
WHERE
type='C'
AND
accountid=9949388
GROUP BY encountercode, dos
having max(txn.created) > DATEADD(DAY, -45, GETDATE())
ORDER by dos ASC
