Happy ‘World Family Doctor Day’!
This day is an initiative of the World Organisation of Family Doctors (WONCA) which represents 126 organisations, one of which is the RACGP. This day serves to recognize the important work carried out by GPs worldwide.
GPs are the driving force behind a healthy Australia. They are experts in prevention, diagnosis and management of complex conditions and are the centre of the healthcare system. GPs are often the first port of call and are the providers of continuity of care. They have to wear many hats to successfully fulfill their role and for that, we should all be very grateful.
Here’s how to celebrate World Family Doctor Day
1.) If you don’t have one, find yourself a GP!
2.) Follow the hashtag #IchoseGP to see why current GPs chose it as their specialty
3.) Consider a fulfilling career as a GP!
