Primary Care

Primary care refers to the work of health care professionals who act as a first point of consultation for all patients.

Such a professional would usually be a general practitioner or family physician, depending on locality.

The advantage of this approach is that these professionals usually have immediately available access and do not necessary require an appointment. They may then refer either to a primary care physician or to secondary care.

Primary care involves the widest scope of health care, including all ages of patients, patients of all socioeconomic and geographic origins, patients seeking to maintain optimal health, and patients with all manner of acute and chronic physical, mental and social health issues, including multiple chronic diseases.

Consequently, a primary care practitioner must possess a wide breadth of knowledge in many areas.

Continuity is a key desirable characteristic of primary care, as patients usually prefer to consult the same primary care doctor for routine check-ups, and every time they require an initial consultation about a new complaint.

Collaboration among providers is a desirable characteristic of primary care.

Common chronic illnesses, usually treated in primary care, include:

  • Hypertension, heart failure, and angina
  • Diabetes
  • Asthma and COPD
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Back pain
  • Arthritis
