Making the most of every appointment

Before you attend each appointment consider the following things:

  • Decide what you want to get out of your appointment. You may wish to fill in
  • this form to take with you to be used as a reminder during the consultation.
  • Think carefully about ways you can improve your own health. Consider the
  • common things that can make our health worse e.g. smoking, drinking too much
  • alcohol, over eating, not doing enough exercise. Your doctor would be happy to
  • help you to set and achieve goals that may improve your overall health.
  • Arrange a double appointment if you need to deal with more than one thing or
  • have to discuss something that may require more time and consideration.
  • Consider taking someone along with you to help prompt you about the things
  • you want to talk about and to remember the outcomes from the consultation.
  • Remember to cancel any appointments you can’t make

During your appointment:

  • Tell your doctor of any new symptoms or changes in your current
  • symptoms
  • Pass the ‘Patient Agenda’ form to your doctor and at the end of the appointment
  • check you have covered what you wanted to and have an agreed action plan.
  • If you don’t understand what the doctor is saying to you, ask them to repeat it so
  • that you are both clear.
  • Don’t be worried about asking questions.
