If you attend casualty or are admitted to hospital it is important to make short notes of the episode for your other health care professionals to be aware of what has happened. Of course you may need to fill this in after the event depending on how sick you were. However, all information will be helpful.

Here you or the doctors or nurses who see you can make short notes, especially any new diagnoses or changes in medication.

Always ask for a copy or your discharge summary to take to be able to show your regular doctor or GP and to keep a record of what happened. Ask the sta to contact your regular doctor with results and any changes they make to your treatment.
