Family Doctor/ GP and Hospital Visits

How to make the most of your time with a doctor or nurse

How to prepare for visiting your family doctor or dermatology team about your skin

If you have a skin problem or concern, you will likely visit either your family doctor (your general practitioner/GP) or a hospital-based dermatology team (which includes consultant doctors and nurses).

You may have been thinking about your appointment, including what you would like to discuss with your doctor or nurse. There can be a lot to consider or remember.

Time with a GP or your hospital dermatology team is precious, so how can you make the most of your time?

To help you with this, the ISF have developed two step-by-step guides; one for Family doctor/GP visits and a second for Hospital visits about your skin condition.  These will help you to prepare for your next visit about your skin, whether you are attending with psoriasis, eczema, acne, or any other dermatology condition.

Thinking ahead and preparing will help you and your GP or dermatology team plan your care and treatment, and help you get the most from your appointment.

Whether this is your first appointment or you have had several appointments already, these short guides can help you plan ahead for your consultation.
