In celebrating Self Management Week 2015, NHS Western Isles have launched ‘My Patient Journey’, a personal guide to help patients, as well as their family or carers, to record information they may receive at clinical appointments.

Many people find it difficult to process information they receive at clinical appointments, and after leaving, find they are unable to remember exactly what was discussed, or what the next stage of treatment may be.

My Patient Journey, available at www.wihb.scot.nhs.uk/my-patient-journey, offers the patient the opportunity to record information received, to better understand and process, after they have left their appointment.

The guide also enables the patient to create a unique one-stop information source on their specific health condition.
