What is a General Practitioner?
A GP is a medical doctor who has qualified in general medicine and works in the community, often in private practice, to treat patients for a wide range of medical conditions or health issues. Some of the services provided by a GP include:
- Health check-ups and screenings
- Diagnosis of illnesses or medical conditions
- Medical advice and information
- Mental health care
- Ordering of certain medical tests
- Providing nutrition advice
- Providing prescription medication
- Providing referrals to appropriate specialists
- Management of acute or chronic medical conditions
- Immediate emergency care following an accident
When should you see a General Practitioner?
A family GP can assist with mild to severe medical conditions. They are instrumental in the early detection of certain diseases or conditions, and the subsequent treatment plan you receive. Book an appointment with a doctor from the Health4Me GP Network if you are sick, injured or experiencing serious medical symptoms. A general practitioner can assist you with acute or short-term medical problems like the treatment of a minor wound, an asthma attack or common colds and flu.
A GP can also assist with the treatment of chronic conditions, like high blood pressure, mental health conditions or heart disease. The general practitioner will prescribe a treatment plan to alleviate your symptoms. In order to do so, they might assess your health, consult your family medical history, order some diagnostic tests, recommend certain lifestyle changes, prescribe medication or refer you to a specialist.
