General and Family


A general practitioner (GP) who specializes in Family Medicine is a doctor who provides primary care. A GP treats acute and chronic illnesses and provides preventive care and health education for all ages and both sexes. They have particular skills in treating people with multiple health issues and co-morbidities. The term general practitioner is common in Ireland, the United Kingdom, some other Commonwealth countries and Bulgaria. In the English-speaking countries the word physician is largely reserved for certain other types of medical specialists, notably in internal medicine. A Principal GP in the UK is a senior doctor, like their Consultants peers they must hold the Certificate of completion of training (CCT) in the specialty of general practice.
