Expert tips from Dr Sally Harris, private GP at The Wilmslow Hospital, part of HCA Healthcare UK
Hi, I’m Sally, one of the private GPs at The Wilmslow Hospital in Cheshire. Having been a GP for many years, I’d like to share some of my insights on how to make your GP appointments as productive, comfortable, and beneficial for you as possible.
Preparing for your appointment
One of the best ways to get the most from your appointment is to do a little preparation beforehand; taking a few moments before your visit to jot down all your symptoms, concerns and any questions you may have. This ensures that you and one of our GPs can cover everything you wished to at your appointment and that you leave with your future care plan set.
Leave any embarrassment behind
It’s a well-worn and familiar statement, but we really have ‘seen and heard it all’ and you should never feel embarrassed or hesitant to discuss anything with your GP. Your consultation is always confidential and we’ll provide guidance tailored to you.
Whether it is a sensitive women’s or men’s health issue, a mental health concern, or any other issue, rest assured that our private GP service at The Wilmslow Hospital values your health and well-being above all else.
Discuss preventative care
Preventative care is an important part of maintaining your overall health. You can book a GP appointment with us to discuss your general health and this may include health screening, lifestyle changes or understanding more about your risk of certain conditions, including cancer or heart problems.
Ask questions and seek clarification
Don’t hesitate to ask questions or request further explanation if something isn’t clear. Our team is here to provide you with all the information you need to make informed decisions about your health. We encourage open communication to ensure you have a clear understanding of your health and any plans – we’re here to support you every step of the way.
