Hospital doctors should write directly to patients rather than GPs, says new guidance


If you read the report in BBC Health News, ‘’The initiative is being led by Dr Hugh Rayner, a kidney specialist, who first started writing directly to patients in 2005.’ So you wonder why there is such a bigotry amongst these secondary care doctors to follow and change their way of practice earlier . ‘Doctors told to ditch Latin and use 'plain English' It is genuinely the right thing to do and actually save us(GP) a lot of unnecessary effort.
