What does a GP do?

A General Practitioner (GP) is your family doctor and is the main point of contact for general NHS healthcare. All UK residents are entitled to the services of an NHS GP.

GPs are highly skilled doctors who support patients throughout their lives. They help you to manage your health and prevent illness and are trained in all aspects of general medicine. This includes child health, mental health, adult medicine, the diagnosis and management of acute medical and surgical problems and the management of long term health conditions.

GPs act as a patient’s advocate, supporting and representing a patient’s best interests to ensure they receive the best and most appropriate health and/or social care. GPs also provide the link to further health services and work closely with other healthcare colleagues to help develop those services. They may arrange hospital admissions and referrals to specialists and they link with secondary and community services about your care, taking advice and sharing information where needed. They also collect and record important information from other healthcare professionals involved in your treatment.

GPs are also involved in the education and training of doctors, practice staff and other healthcare professionals.
