Family Medicine – General Practitioners
Family Medicine is a division of primary care that provides continuing and comprehensive health care for the individual and family across all ages, genders, diseases, and the body. General Practitioners deliver a range of acute, chronic and preventive medical care services. In addition to diagnosing and treating illness, they also provide preventive care, including:
- Routine check-ups
- Health-risk assessments
- Screening tests
- Personalized counselling on maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Family Medicine is based on knowledge of the patient in the context of the family and the community which focus on disease prevention and health promotion.
