1. Writing Date
Start with the date of writing the letter. Look at some sample dates:
|Sample 1||Sample 2|
|12th July, 2020||12 July 2020|
What if the date is not directly provided in the case notes?
If the date of writing is not provided in the case notes:
- Write the date of exam.
- Write the date of the patient’s last visit.
Where to find the Date of Writing?
- At the starting of the case notes, usually in the first 10 lines.
- In the Discharge Plan areas of the case notes.
- The last visit date.
- Last of the “progress date.”
