1). For each time period, how many discharge summaries were sent to GP practices after 24 hours of a discharge of a patient? i.e how many discharge summaries were delayed in sending to GPs? This counts for outpatient, inpatient, day case and A&E care.
2). For each time period, how many discharge summaries included planned and requested actions for GPs?
3). How many consultant to consultant (C2C) referrals were made in each time period?
1). We only have data for inpatients (which includes day case) as the 24 hour target does not apply to outpatients and letters are manually typed. A&E patients who are admitted become inpatients and are included in the figures below. There is no data or target for letters sent to GPs for patients who are discharged from A&E.
