There are some core issues that define a well-constructed visit to your GP. Of course, sometimes you can make a big difference to this by coming well-prepared (see FAQ “How can I contribute to getting good care?). And just due to human nature a visit might not work out perfectly sometimes.

When a visit goes well, you will note that your GP:

  • Meets your immediate need to manage acute presentations;
  • Considers who you are, how you live, where you came from;
  • Based on knowing you, thinks about how to help you prevent future health problems;
  • Demonstrates respect for your wishes, culture, beliefs & individuality;
  • Listens well and responds appropriately to build a rapport based on honesty, respect, and care.
