General Practitioners look after the health and well-being of their patients and communities. They treat and diagnose injuries. General practitioners have very close relationships with their patients. Day to day duties may include examining and diagnosing patients, prescribing medicines and sometimes performing minor operations. Thorough knowledge of diseases and their symptoms is required for this diagnosis and treatment.
