Making decisions together

You should be part of all decisions about your care so you can agree which approaches are likely to suit you best. Your healthcare team should involve you by:

  • talking and listening to you so that they understand what matters to you

  • giving you all the information you need so that you can make your mind up

  • explaining if they think something that is mentioned here won't work for you and why, and discussing other options you could try instead

  • giving you details for someone in your care team that you can contact if you have any questions.

There is more information about how you should be involved in your care on the NICE website.
