A NEW on­line book­let aimed at guid­ing pa­tients and mem­bers of the pub­lic on how to get the best from their visit to a doc­tor or health pro­fes­sional has been pro­duced by the Med­i­cal Coun­cil.

Med­i­cal Coun­cil vice pres­i­dent Dr Au­drey Dil­lonm said: “This book­let was de­vel­oped with the aim of pro­vid­ing pa­tients with clear and ac­ces­si­ble in­for­ma­tion in re­la­tion to in­ter­ac­tions with their doc­tor.

“It gives prag­matic ad­vice on the dif­fer­ent as­pects of care and also gets into the trick­ier the­o­ret­i­cal is­sues which may arise dur­ing the course of treat­ment. I hope that this book­let will be a help­ful re­source for pa­tients look­ing for guid­ance in re­la­tion to their own healthcare.”
