Letters, Calls and Emails: How GPs can help with NHS communications

Dear Editor

Nowadays our discussions with colleagues include targets, guidelines and funding which affect departments across primary and secondary care.

After a recent meeting between GPs and the health authority, I spoke to a department head at a local hospital and related the topics discussed.

At the end of the call, he thanked me profusely.

When I replied to his over-reaction that the two of us had established a good working relationship over many years, he explained: ‘I really enjoy speaking to you. It is the only way I can find out what is going on at this hospital.'
