Medical or Dental Appointment Information Sheet

Medical or dental appointments can be distressing or traumatic for survivors. We have created this sheet to take with you to outline your needs as a survivor.


We are aware that medical and dental appointments can be particularly triggering for survivors so we have created a document which you can bring to medical appointments and will help the medical practitioner know best how to support you.

The document has spaces where you can adapt/add/edit what is already there so that it is reflective of your needs.

It might be worth keeping hold of a copy of the document so that you can bring it to further appointments in case the medical practitioner doesn’t remember the contents.

We have two versions – one has the Survivors’ Network information on it, the other does not if you do not want to disclose your survivor status in your appointment.
