Questions for your medical team

Consultations with your medical team are a great opportunity to ask questions to help you understand and manage your pulmonary fibrosis.

Making the most of your consultation

You may be a little nervous when talking to your medical team at the hospital. It is a good idea to take someone with you who can help and support you – a family member or friend.

You could go armed with a notebook and pen to keep notes of what is said. Most of all please remember that you are entitled to have your questions answered fully - and to be given time to take it all in and to leave appointments with as much information as possible.
