Getting the most out of a Consultation

The BMA offers the following advice to help you use your time with the Clinician more effectively:

  • Make a list of the 2 questions/problems you wish to discuss before you attend the surgery - you may need a double appointment if you have more
  • You may wish to write down information - so have a pen and paper available
  • If you maybe examined, dress appropriately
  • Be ready to detail any non prescribed medication that you are taking
  • You may wish to bring a relative or colleague with you
  • Do not hesitate to ask any questions
  • If you are unsure of what the clinican has said, please ask them to repeat it or write it down for you
  • For a chaperone, please inform the receptionist when booking the appointment or on your arrival
  • If you require a interpreter - please inform the receptionist when booking your appointment.  This cannot be arranged on your arrival.
