My Life, My Health – Booking an appointment

How do you book appointments with your doctor?

Does someone book them for you? If you don’t use the telephone, and your doctor’s surgery doesn’t have other ways to book appointments, it can be really frustrating.

Lots of deaf teenagers have to rely on friends or family to make an appointment for them, or they have to go to their surgery in person to book. 19 year old Luke and his dad tell us how he communicates with hearing staff, including his GP.

Do you want to go to the GP by yourself like Luke? Here is some information to help you book an appointment feel more confident and learn how to do things by yourself!
