    Default TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN letters

    When writing a letter TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN, should you use
    Dear Sir/Madam.

    I work for a GP and we do a lot of TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN letters and I never know whether the title should be included. The GP always finishes the letter ... Signed and then her name.

    Can you help please?

    Welcome, Ob1

    As an open document, not directed to a specific person, these letters are headed

    TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN

    and there is no direct greeting. The text follows without one.

    There is also usually just the signature and no end salutation.

    Thanks for clearing that up for me. I suspected that was the case but it's nice to have it confirm. Many thanks for your help.
