General Practitioners (GPs) look after the health of people in their local community and deal with a whole range of health problems.

They also provide health education, offer advice on smoking and diet, run clinics, give vaccinations and carry out simple surgical procedures.

Your local GP surgery provides a wide range of family health services, including:

  • examinations and treatment
  • prescriptions for medicines
  • referrals to other health services and social services
