GP Partner

General Practitioners (GPs) are doctors who have specialised to work in General Practice and in a primary care setting. They play a crucial role in diagnosing and treating various medical conditions, while also ensuring that patients receive timely referrals to hospitals as and when specialised treatment is required.

General Practice (GP) surgeries are small independent businesses.

A GP partner is a self-employed general practitioner who, alongside other GPs, and sometimes also nurses or other healthcare staff, is responsible for running their own practice. Therefore as well as being a healthcare professional, they also are business owners –  meaning they take on additional responsibilities such as managing practice staff and the financial/ administrative tasks of owning a business.
