Rheumatology admin - Letters from Consultant to GPs keep going missing, Blood results not passed to Consultant by admin and then not filed properly, letters typed up are not on the system for GP to see months after appointments, and paper copy is not put in the notes for other departments to see. Not a one off, has happened lots over the years. The service itself is proper poor, and the poor admin makes it all even worse. No one knows whats happening to the patient, and of course then you get a locum GP or Consultant, and with no proper record of copy of letters and results on your file, lots of results go missed, medicine not listed, and no proper plan on record of tests and things which manage the condition, are on file so all involved have no idea whats going on.
