This functionality does not replace verbal communication and currently is not an endorsed clinical handover method in Metro South Health.

Patient and Provider Letters are available within this component, however, please do not change your current workflows. Metro South Health Digital Health Clinical Consultation Services are establishing how this may assist communication between patients and providers and further process will be communicated when available.
