Do I need to see a GP?

You can now access many different primary care services directly without the need to see a GP first.

Primary Care is expanding and this page will help you to determine who is best placed in Primary Care to help you. This is part of the right patient, right time, right place NHS initiative. With increasing demand on Primary Care and no expansion of GP number's you may be able to get quicker and more appropriate help from an allied health care practitioner (such as a physiotherapist or optometrist) in Primary Care. By choosing to see an appropriate allied health care professional you will be helping out the NHS, as this should free up more GP appointments to deal with problems only a GP can deal with.
