Getting hospital work by the back door


72 years old came to see me with change in bowel habits over the preceding 4 weeks .Hb was 13.1 a year ago.He was admitted with urosepsis 3 months prior to current symptoms.Out of curiosity I checked his bloods from that admission [on ICE] and HB was 10 on admission, was not even communicated via discharge summary .I referred to colorectal , turned out to be rectal cancer.
