Victorian GPs report on the good and the bad in clinical handover

Discharge planning and discharge summaries from Victorian hospitals have been rated as 'poor' in a recent survey of local GPs, with more than a third saying they were not informed directly about the death of a patient.

Overall, Victorian GPs gave a satisfactory rating for communication received from their nominated hospital or health service, but say things could still be much improved.
