Dear Dr Claphom
Re: Miss Victoria Price DOB: 04 November 2006
I am writing to update you regarding the current health status of Miss Victoria Price who is diagnosed with left wrist injury and suspected to have depression. She requires further assessment and management.
On 27 August 2021 Miss Price had an injury to the left hand by a ball hit during the hockey match. Her examination revealed healed left arm cuts, which is uniform in pattern and clearly made at different times. In addition, she has suggestive features of self harming such as scratches, which she reported that from a pricky bush. Apart from that she seems apathetic and vulnerable. As a result, an urgent referral has been given to her social worker.
Today, Miss Price’s foster family member, Mrs Parmer reported that she is withdrawn, moody and mostly in her room listening to music. Her school described her as bright student; however, she distracts other pupils and hastess efforts in class. At present, she is not intrested to involve in sports activities.
Pertaining the above, it would be appreaciated, if you could do further investigations to rule out Miss Price’s condition and please assess her arm.
Please do not hesitate to contact me. Incass of further queries.
