Snail mail is old hat, say RACGP

RACGP president Dr Frank Jones has endorsed calls for improved methods of communication between doctors after a coroner criticised a specialist for using the mail to tell a GP about a patient he had initiated on warfarin.

SA deputy coroner Anthony Schapel found the “archaic” practice of sending a letter by ordinary post contributed to the death of Marjorie Irene Aston, 86.
