3. Writing Subject / Re:
There are two kinds of subjects
Look at the samples:
You already know that there are two categories of letters. The first category includes transfer / discharge letters and the second category, information / advice letters. The chances of the first category is 95% while there is very little possibility for an information / advice letter.
|Transfer / Discharge Letter||Information letter|

- Re: You should write the name and age of the patient on the Re: line.
- Subject: The subject should be a noun phrase, like, “Regarding spread and care for threadworm-infestation.”
NB: Re: is short for “Reference.”
