General Practice and Public Health

General practitioners have traditionally focused on providing primary care to individuals who present to their medical practice with various illnesses. This patient-centric approach has its philosophical underpinnings in a biomedical view of disease that emphasises an individual focus. Public health on the other hand focuses on the health of the entire population and is underpinned by addressing the social determinants of health. Such a model tends to privilege the needs of the population over the needs of the individual.
