Patient Health Summaries

The patient  health summary is the  most  useful information you can present to a doctor you are seeing  for the first time or when attending Accident  & Emergency or being admitted to   hospital.  Patient  health  summaries are  readily printed by your GP and  ususally  are  1-2 A 4 pages that are easily carried and read by a health professional.
