NHS Decision Aids

Patient Decision Aids (PDAs) are designed to help patients make difficult decisions about their treatments and medical tests. They are used when there is no clinical evidence to suggest that one treatment is better than another, or when patients need help in deciding which treatment option will be best for them.

A PDA provides information on a specific disease or procedure which will allow the patient to make an informed decision. Research shows that PDAs are really effective in helping patients make informed choices about their healthcare and increase patients’ awareness of the expected risks, benefits and likely outcomes.

Going Abroad

Travel abroad is so common nowadays that it is often easy to forget the necessary precautions. Make sure you don’t turn your holiday into a horror story! Consult a practice nurse six weeks prior to departure. If possible she will advise you what vaccinations are required for the country you are visiting and what medications you may need. Make sure you have adequate medical insurance. If you are visiting an EEC country you will need a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) which replaces the E111 form. An application form is included in “The Travellers Booklet” (booklet S40) available from reception.

Medical Examinations

Medical examinations for employment, insurance purposes etc are considered private services offered to patients and are payable by the patient accordingly.
