GPs to be protected from secondary care workload dump


Only 7days meds, very dangerous. Discharged Saturday, gets pharmacy to request rpt. medication Monday. Letter processed GP surgery Tuesday and rot template amended. Whoops all the medication stopped in hospital has already been reissued. We need a repeat tempalate for medication that is compatible across all IT systems, primary and secondary care, so once changed, in any care setting, it is apparent to all service providers.
