The new guide can help you get the best out of your visit to the doctor

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."

Working with Your Doctor: Useful Information for Patients can be accessed at MedicalCouncil.ie.
