Getting the Most From Your Doctor

Before your consultation it is often helpful to think about what you want to tell the Doctor or Nurse. This should mean that when you are speaking to them you remember to tell them everything you are worried about or feel is relevant to help the doctor help you.  The type of questions you may wish to think about are:-

What are you really worried about?

What symptoms do you want to tell the doctor about?

Are you clear what you want from your Doctor? Perhaps a diagnosis, treatment, referral or just advice.

The attached Patient Information Leaflet, which is also available to pick up in the waiting area has been developed to help patients make best use of the their appointment.  Their is space within the leaflet to write down questions you may wish to ask the Doctor.
