On the other hand, if you don’t know who General Practitioners are and what they do in hospital then please read our introduction!

Who are General Practitioners and what they do?

In the hierarchy of doctors’ practice and scope of work, a general practitioner is considered primary medical care specialist and the first step for a patient to approach before he or she is referred to specialized doctors.

In other words, general practitioners can diagnose, treat and prevent all sorts of infections before they go chronic or severe thereby preventing complications that might have emerged from untreated health conditions. They handle or treat conditions and diseases of all kinds and of all the body systems, and when something is above their knowledge or skills, they normally refer the patient to a specialist.

Besides the medical treatment and care, these doctors also offer holistic care and psychological counseling to ensure that the patient is fully sorted.

How they Work

First, they take the medical history of your illness and family health history that could have led to the occurrence of the condition. They offer face to face consultation ensuring that all the required information that will lead to proper care is harvested so that you are helped perfectly. They perform basic medical examinations to determine your general health status so that they rule out any disease that could be underlying your presenting illness. When complicated tests are needed, general practitioners normally hand you over to trusted labs where you can do the tests and get reliable results.

So General practicioners have their own office where they do consultations. That’s a first clue to find gifts for general practicioners. Why not give something that will enlighten office? Or maybe some useful item that will ease their work?

Or go straight to office section and maybe you will be able to find some interesting gifts there. 

Areas that General Practitioners Work

Ideally, GP should have knowledge to handle conditions of all the body systems.

These include the respiratory system, reproductive system, and the GUT system. If you approach your General practitioner, he or she will ensure that all relevant tests are done in regard to your presenting complains. On the respiratory system, diseases like asthma, bronchitis, emphysema and Tuberculosis’s are always managed. On the GUT, diseases like Ulcers, Cron’s disease, and constipation are always handled. Fertility and infertility issues are also managed.

So if you considering some “body system related gift” (like it would be for cardiologists) then there are no restrictions here. General practitioners will have basic knowledge and even more about all systems.

In many countries, general practitioners work as family medicine doctors to ensure that whenever a family has an issue, they handle it quickly before it becomes complicated. Family doctors are hired when there is a chronic condition or hereditary condition in the family like hypertension, Diabetes or Kidney disease. This would be good for quick consultation and intervention to ensure that people get the way forward whenever a medical emergency arises.

Training and Certifications

General medical doctors are very paramount when it comes to managing people’s health which is why it is good to ensure that your doctor is full trained and certified by the relevant board. Ideally, General practitioners are supposed to undergo the five basic years of bachelors training then complete one year of internship before they can be certified by the board to practice as doctors.

Working and helping the patients

I believe that you already can imagine how much time family doctors are spending with patients. To communicate effectively and efficiently with patients family doctors must have certain skills. To develop these skills it is necessary to practice many years in medical school and in residency. One of musts, that is necessary to achieve good communication with patient is patient has to understand what problems he have.

To help your family doctor communicate better good option as a gift would be anatomical models. Just simple anatomical model of human body could save time and improve patients understanding about his condition.
