Your GP or family doctor is the first point of contact for most medical problems. He or she can also deal with minor surgery, joint infiltrations, freezing of skin lesions, vaccinations, child development screening, cervical smears, contraception and HRT advice.

When a referral is needed, he will arrange an appointment with the appropriate specialist and order any tests that may be indicated. By maintaining close communication with the various branches of medicine involved he can coordinate effective management and guide you through to a successful outcome. When a patient has multiple health problems it is vital to have a GP to maintain an overall view.
