Questions to ask your health team
Download and print for your next appointment
Talking to your medical team is important - asking questions can help you to understand your condition and allow you to make informed decisions about your treatment and care. You may want to write down a list of questions, or print this list to take with you when you see your medical team.
These questions have been written from the perspective of a patient and are not an exhaustive list. There may be additional questions that you may also want to ask that are important to you. Some questions may be personal and difficult to ask, your medical team will be used to answering these and will be happy to help.
Don't worry if you don't get to ask all of your questions at once, or if you think of further questions, you may be appointed a key worker within your medical who will be your main point of contact. They will be able to help answer the questions you have, or refer you to someone that can help.
