General practitioners

Rights and duties of General Practitioners

GPs (General Practitioners) are the first and most indispensable link between the health service and society, providing open and unlimited access for their patients, dealing with all health problems, and taking on the role of advocate for their patients when necessary. They have a specific responsibility for the health of the community and they take care of health problems in all their aspects - physical, psychological, social, cultural and existential. The rights and duties of General Practitioners are defined by national, regional and local agreements which regulate their activities as part of the National Health Service, relating to the sectors of primary care, continuity of care, medicine for local services, and regional health emergencies.
