What about test results that are not available at point of discharge

The NHS Standard Contract (2017-2019) states that a discharge summary should be electronically issued to the Service User’s GP within 24 hours.  If test results are not available to meet this deadline, then it should be issued to meet the deadline and a further “results letter” rather than a Transfer of Care discharge letter sent at a later point
