Important information about your appointment

Your visit to the clinic is a good opportunity to discuss any questions you may have with your doctor. To make it easier, here are some things you can do to make the most of your appointment time:

  • Write down and prioritise the questions you want to ask
  • You may want to bring a relative or friend to help you remember the conversation.
  • Please ask for written information.
  • You can request copies of letters written about you.
  • If you haven’t understood what has been said, please ask your doctor or nurse again.

It is important to us that you feel involved in the decisions being made about your care and treatment.

  • Please ask if you haven’t understood what has been said.
  • If you need another appointment the doctor or nurse will let you know and signpost you to the Outpatient reception to make the appointment. If this is not possible it will be sent to you by post.
