You don't have to include the words "letter before actions" however it is advisable that it is made clear in the letter that you are complying with the Pre-Action Protocol which states that the parties must attempt to avoid litigation wherever possible and that you would consider mediation or any other alternative dispute resolution in order to avoid the need for the matter to be resolved by the courts.

I hope this answers your question.
