A Kirwan GP is your family doctor. Their role is to provide you with detailed comprehensive consultation and assist with your health care from your childhood to adulthood. A GP has a wide range of knowledge and practice of various medical issues and areas and can also have expertise in few of medical areas. Majority of times, you are unaware of what exactly is the wrong with your health, and not really sure who would be the right kind of a doctor to visit. So a general practitioner becomes your first walk in point. They do a proper examination and if there is a need then they refer you to a specialist doctor.
A general practitioner has the authority to communicate with you specialist doctor, if and when required. Not only they recommend, but they can further connect you with any other medical care and support that you would need. It is advised to have your own GP rather any random GP, and specially to have someone with whom you are comfortable to talk to. Your regular GP is supposed to be an important person for you, as they are the ones who are aware of your medical history, hence, their advice and word becomes quite essential with respect to your health care.
So How Is It You Know Your Health Is In The Hands Of A Good GP?
Well, first and foremost, in your first visit to them, you will feel at ease and comfortable. You can easily express what you are facing and open up with your personal information, which you won’t in anyway share with your parents. You will feel confident to ask difficult questions and finally you can see that the doctor is not only listening to you but also understanding your health condition.
However, you will have a first good visit with your GP, when you are fully prepared too. Do not just walk in blank. Make sure you have your medical history prepared, have clarity about your symptoms that you are facing and finally, have your questions to ask prepared too. Nothing tops your honesty, be open, your GP is only there to help you through your sickness.
If the GP feels that at certain point you will have to get hospitalized, they will put in a case recommendation for you with your medical condition and medical history. Once you are through with visiting your hospitalization, it is always recommended to go back to your GP with your discharge summary. This will allow to keep them updated with your medical history and put it into consideration for any next visit.
