Transfer documentation

Transferred patients need appropriate documentation for their ongoing care. A photocopy of all recent relevant notes including the blood test results and drug prescription chart are essential for all patients.

For paediatric patients you may wish to write a letter for the accepting team.

For neonatal patients we ask that an updated Badger summary is completed.

If your hospital does not automatically share radiology images with the receiving hospital then please send by PACS.
