A digital tool to help young people who are worried about their mental health get more out of visits to their GP
Doc Ready helps young people to know what to expect during a GP consultation, and to think about and prepare an agenda they can use to talk about their mental health and wellbeing issues.
The project is a set of digital tools that work across a number of devices, giving young people information about the important things they might need to think about before visiting their doctor, as well as guidance about what happens to personal information that they share with the doctor.
Doc Ready allows a young person to create and print a personal agenda based on their symptoms to help structure their conversation with their GP.
The tool also offers practical advice on things to think about prior to a GP appointment, what to expect from the appointment itself as well as guidance about what happens to personal information they share with the doctor.
As a result of using Doc Ready, young people will have a better understanding of the consultation process, experience increased confidence in dealing with their GP, and help to make the most of their doctor’s appointment.
