Professor Sir Muir Gray, who’s on The College of Medicine’s Scientific Advisory Council, has revealed his advice on what patients should be asking their doctors to make the most of a short appointment time.  

Sir Muir, who is a director at GHS, a platform for tracking physical, emotional and cognitive health, shared the advice with MailOnline, offering six key questions that could help empower patients when they have just a short time to discuss their health with a GP.

  • What have you tried?
  • Does anything make it better or worse?
