It is good practice for specialists to communicate with GPs regarding the outcome of appointments and any findings during surgery. If you do not wish for Olivia to communicate by post with your GP in general or about a particular issue, please let her know. Patients are copied in to all communication with GPs so you will always know what information has been shared.
