We encourage all our patients to use our Appointment Guide.

Please read it or print a copy to bring to your next appointment.

Our guide makes it clear what usually happens in an appointment. Doctors & nurses are trained to follow the 3 main steps. If you know what they are trying to do, it can help the conversation work better for everyone.

These steps may not seem new or surprising to you, but they may help you get the most from your appointment.

We hope you'll try out our Guide, and give us your feedback on whether your appointment feels different. You can give your feedback to your doctor or nurse or via this website.
