Following a Hospital Admission
After an emergency admission it is often helpful to see a GP afterwards to review the condition, address any queries, review medications. This is not always necessary if the condition has been dealt with or has resolved.
You are usually given a discharge letter before you leave the hospital. The hospital will send a copy of this to the surgery informing the GP of any follow up actions or medication changes etc. that may be needed. Please contact us if you should encounter any problems immediately after your discharge.
Letters are also sent to the GP following planned hospital admissions, attendance at clinics or from other service providers. These may arrive electronically or by post and are either for information only, to ensure completeness of your medical records, or may relate to any follow up actions required.
