Behind the scenes of your general practice… Come and meet the team!
General Practice teams are made up of a whole range of professionals, such as nurses, paramedics and clinical pharmacists. But a new survey has found that many people don’t realise that many roles, like mental health practitioners (66%), physiotherapists (71%) and social prescribers (89%), could be available at general practice.
To help explain the support available, three curious children go behind the scenes at a general practice to meet the health professionals working there and learn more about how they help get patients the care they need.
The film illustrates the real-life process patients go through when they contact their local general practice, from the reception team using the information patients provide to getting directed to the right health professional – such as a physiotherapist or mental health practitioner.
If you need a GP appointment, you will always be offered one. Having a range of health professionals at your general practice means you can receive the most appropriate care for your condition as quickly as possible.
