Primary Care

Your local GP practice is the main point of contact for general healthcare needs.

Practices employ people in a range of roles and you may not always need to see at doctor:

  • General Practitioners (GPs)
  • Advanced Nurse Practitioners
  • General Practice Nurses
  • Practice Manager
  • Receptionists
  • Physiotherapists

  • Have an urgent care need
  • Have an illness that does not improve with self-treatment
  • Are worried about your health
  • Have an ongoing health issue
