A medical referral letter is a written communication from one healthcare provider to another, typically a specialist, recommending a patient for further evaluation, diagnosis, or treatment. It contains pertinent medical information, the reason for the referral, and any relevant background details to facilitate seamless continuity of care and collaboration between healthcare professionals.
