Poster for Practices- Hospital Queries

Practices spend a significant amount of time and resource trying to answer questions which patients raise regarding hospital appointments. To reduce this burden the LMC has created a poster for practices to use in waiting rooms and consulting rooms to educate patients about the best way to have these queries answered.

This poster is now available in the link above to view or download.
