My solution to secondary care workload dump

I'm not sure that there is much corporate memory amongst our new rapid-progress SpRs turned consultants to even acknowledge such an idea as " you are now leaving the ward with an uncertain diagnosis/ complex treatment / uncertain likelihood of response to treatment, so come back to the ward / clinic next week" . It would be imappropriate to ask your GP ( on the way home / next week/ without a discharge summary to comment..." As SHOs we followed up and those who stayed in hospital practice learned from this monitoring...self-defeating now, isn't it?!
