One of the biggest challenges of seeing your GP is time – there just aren’t enough appointments to go round and they often are only available at a time not suitable to most schedules.
A GP is a general practitioner who acts as a springboard for all your health concerns, mental or physical. A GP can assess and signpost a patient to appropriate specialist services as well as dispensing medicines for more minor issues.
You may find it difficult to see your GP during lockdown periods because the surgery is closed or restricted. It may also be more difficult to get an appointment because there are lots of sick people particularly as we head into the winter.
