More aspects of General Practice you may find helpful;

Primary Healthcare

GPs are typically the first medical professionals patients visit when they have health concerns. They are trained to diagnose and treat a wide range of health issues, from common illnesses to chronic conditions.

Preventive Care

General practitioners place a strong emphasis on preventive care. They offer advice on healthy lifestyles, vaccinations, and screenings to catch potential health problems early.

Continuity of Care

GPs often develop long-term relationships with their patients, which allows them to better understand an individual’s medical history, preferences, and needs.


When necessary, GPs can refer patients to specialists for more in-depth evaluation or treatment. They act as a gatekeeper to the broader healthcare system.

Holistic Approach

General practitioners consider not only the physical but also the psychological and social aspects of health. They may address mental health concerns and offer counselling or therapy.

Chronic Disease Management

GPs play a significant role in managing chronic conditions, such as diabetes, hypertension, and asthma. They help patients maintain a good quality of life while managing these ongoing health issues.

Emergency Care

In some cases, GPs provide emergency care and stabilising treatment before transferring a patient to a hospital.


In recent years, telehealth and virtual consultations have become increasingly common in general practice, allowing patients to access healthcare remotely.


GPs often engage in patient education, helping individuals understand their conditions, medications, and treatment plans.
