An example of this in a health and social care setting could be attending a doctor’s appointment. An individual may have the idea that they might be unwell of some sort, this would be the first stage of the communication cycle. The person then may take further action and book an appointment with their doctor to see if they could help them in some sort, this would be the second cycle of the communication cycle as the individual would have put their thought into a code. The individual will then go see their doctor and discuss what is wrong in several communication techniques an example could be talking or signing if you have partial hearing or none at all, this would be the third stage as they are sending a message to the doctor. The doctor would listen to the individual so they can receive the message and fully understand, this would be the fourth stage, the doctor should then decode the message so they understand and can help the individual. If the message is fully understood the doctor will be able to help the patient out and help them get better if they possibly can, this would be the final and sixth stage where the message has been understood.
