Abstract

Writing directly to patients and their families or carers, rather than to General Practitioners, can help the patient-doctor relationship and improve patients' understanding of their condition. This AoMRC guidance for doctors has advice on structure, content and style, and offers advice on patient confidentiality and consent.
