Whether your appointment is a day or several months away, this tool will help you prepare for that often short, but very important time with your General Practitioner (GP) or Dermatologist. 

Preparation is key: it's never too soon to start planning. In fact, sometimes it can be easier to make a note of something you experience so you don’t forget when speaking with your doctor.

Why it pays to persist with ongoing appointments

It can feel disheartening if an appointment doesn’t go the way you hoped. But, setting expectations and learning how to persist can pay off at your next appointment. 

Ultimately, being open with your healthcare professional and sharing as much information as possible with them could improve the management of your eczema.
