To the Editor: We were interested to note that the evolution of morning handover at Launceston General Hospital, as described by Fassett and Bollipo,1 closely parallels our own experience at the Canberra Hospital, and we endorse their points about running a successful meeting. Our hospital has a large Geriatric Unit and all subspecialties are covered, but we do not have a general medicine unit.
