The Support You Need

A general practitioner (GP) is a doctor who is also qualified in general medical practice. GPs are often the first point of contact for someone, of any age, who feels sick or has a health concern. They treat a wide range of medical conditions and health issues.

A GP may also undertake further education in specific areas such as women’s or men’s health, sports medicine or paediatrics.
