Clinic Update July 2021
The quality of the referrals received to the vaccine reaction clinic has been variable, resulting in patients needing to repeat their history multiple times.
To try and address this, the attached referral form as an Excel Referral Form has been developed to ensure that the appropriate information is submitted to ensure the patient gets to the right place first time.
