Sample patient histories from askmyGP

To help clinicians understand how a patient history appears, we list examples here.

They are all from real patients, with these medical problems.  Only the names have been changed.  Note that in a typical practice situation, the GP would have access to the patient’s existing medical record in full, which could be important in deciding what to do next.
