A formal report is a structured and formal vehicle for communication between yourself and/or the your employers. Requests for formal reports are common and originate from a variety of sources such as employers, insurance companies or the patients themselves. Once prepared they may be used by the patient for further investigations. In view of these potential implications they must be prepared with accuracy, diligence and an understanding of basic legal principles. Although usually prepared for a specific person, the report may become a public document and be used by a diverse non-medical audience. Clarity of communication and economy of scale are vital to maximise its effectiveness.
A structured format incorporating elements of background information, medical history, physical examination, specimens obtained, treatment provided and opinion is suggested.
