When to see a General Practitioner (GP)?

Most people don’t go to the doctor unless they’re sick or have a problem. But you should start by seeing your GP when you’re well. By seeing your GP routinely, you can stay on top of your health. He or she can provide preventive health screenings and monitor your health over time. This allows them to catch diseases early and help you manage them before they progress into more serious conditions.

How often you routinely see your doctor depends on your health. Many doctors recommend you come in once a year for a check-up. But if you have problems or a chronic condition, such as heart disease or diabetes, you will likely be seen more often.

When deciding whether to call the doctor when you’re experiencing symptoms, you should also consider the state of your health and any risk factors you may have. For example, if you have asthma and you get a respiratory infection, you may need to see your doctor sooner than someone who doesn’t have asthma.

In addition, if you’re having new symptoms after having a procedure, surgery, immunisation, injection, or starting a new medicine, you should call your GP.
