What you need to do as a patient

It is important that you attend your appointments, and let your GP know as soon as possible if you can't attend.

Your responsibilities are to:

  • look after your own and your family's health
  • treat NHS staff and other patients with respect
  • give truthful information about your health
  • follow prescribed treatment and tell your GP if you're finding it difficult
