General Practices & Public Health

General practice is an integral part of medicine, connecting it to the community more than any other medical specialty by providing health information about populations more than any other medical source. General Practitioners provide information about emerging epidemics, effect of environmental calamities, results of changes in social function and economic status of a community through their intelligent awareness and observation. In countries such as New Zealand, UK, Canada and Australia, healthcare costs are kept within reasonable limits due to the effective use of general practices. Also the community satisfaction with healthcare is high and services are matched to different extent of severity and complexity of illness in such countries. It is evident that there is a strong relationship between general practice and public health but there is also significant difference between the two. General practice focuses on providing primary healthcare to individuals and public health aims to fulfil healthcare needs of entire population. General Practitioners try to deliver comprehensive, individual tailored and evidence based care to their patients by the trust and long-term relationship that they have with patients and their families which leads to understanding of their patients’ cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds and lifestyles.
