Did you know that, in addition to your GP, there are other health professionals in general practice who can help you get the right care?
General Practice teams are made up of a whole range of professionals, such as nurses, paramedics and clinical pharmacists. But a new survey has found that many people don’t realise that many roles, like mental health practitioners (66%), physiotherapists (71%) and social prescribers (89%), could be available at general practice.
If you need to see a GP you will always be offered an appointment, but there may be other health professionals available who can provide the most appropriate support. Having a range of health professionals at your general practice means you can receive the right care for your condition as quickly as possible.
