Know Your Doctor: A Self-Help Medical Guide for Patients
by Dr. Alicia Aguilera Montoya Know Your Doctor was written to equip the National Health Services patients in Northern Ireland to communicate better and get the best care from their general practitioners and their consultants. It explains how the general practitioner fits into the overall picture. It facilitates greater communication between doctor and patient so the patient has the confidence to take an active role in his medical care, and to have the knowledge to ask questions. While the research was done in Northern Ireland, after reading findings presented by Dr. Alicia Aguilera Montoya, Know Your Doctor will help patients everywhere in the world, including those who use private health care.
