Consultations and getting the most out of them
 
In normal times, the BMA's Doctor Patient Partnership offers the following advice to help you use your consultation time effectively :
 
Be Prepared: Make a list of any questions/problems you wish to discuss beforehand.  Take a pen and paper in case you wish to note down important points.  Wear loose clothing in case you need to be examined.  Be prepared to tell the GP if you are taking any non-prescription medicines or supplements you are taking.  You can bring someone with you for support. 
 
During the Appointment: Don't be afraid to ask questions.  If you don't understand ask your GP to repeat it or write it down.  If you have a problem that you find difficult to talk about, try to remember that your GP has probably heard it all before and your problem is likely to be a common one.
 
One Problem at a Time: Please remember that an appointment is 10 minutes long.  If you have several problems that you wish to discuss with the Doctor, please ask the receptionist to book a double slot for you.
