How do I make the most of my consultation with the doctor?
It is always best to think and plan in advance.
Try and explain the main reason for your visit at the beginning of the consultation. If there are a number of problems try to write them down in advance, so you don’t forget. Realistically the doctor can deal with one or two problems in a standard consultation. However, there are times when the doctor cannot deal fully with all your problems, and they may need to arrange a follow-up appointment for you.
If you think the doctor may need to examine or do a procedure, think about what to wear. For example, will they need to take a blood sample? Check your blood pressure? If yes, wear suitable loose or short sleeves for ease.
If attending for an ante-natal appointment or suspected urinary tract infection you will need to provide a fresh urine sample. This can be done on arrival and in advance of your appointment to save time. Sample bottles are available from reception or in each bathroom.
