What is General Practice?
General Practice is the medical discipline that delivers primary healthcare in the community. General Practice is usually the first point of call for patients, and deals with everything, from colds and flu through to acute and chronic illnesses. General practitioners also provide preventive care and health education to patients.
The holistic approach of General Practice aims to consider the biological, psychological and social factors relevant to the medical care of each patient. The discipline is not confined to specific organs of the body and involves treating people with multiple health issues.
General Practice delivers cost-effective, personalised medical care in a community setting, and is usually the first point of call for people seeking medical advice. This also helps to take the pressure off hospital emergency departments. Patients often develop long-term, trusting relationships with their GPs, returning to them for navigation of their care.
