General Practice (GP)

General practitioners (GPs) are doctors who treat all common medical conditions.

Where necessary they can refer you to hospitals and other medical services for urgent and specialist treatment. They focus on the health of the whole person combining physical, psychological and social aspects of your care.

Your GP should usually be your first point of call for all medical questions and you will need to make an appointment.

Anyone in England is entitled to register with a GP practice and to see a GP when they need to. You do not have to have a fixed address and you do not have to show ID, or proof of address or immigration status.

The following links will help show you how to find a local GP, how to register and give you information on how to be seen.
