GPs have a crucial role to play in promoting health and preventing disease. During the consultation there are excellent opportunities to discuss healthy living with the patients and for the early detection of illness.
To put patients at the centre of their care, GPs need to possess appropriate skills to support people to self-care, taking them through a range of approaches, in partnership, recognising that the individual should make the choices, decisions and take the actions themselves. Gaining a better understanding about inequalities in health and strategies to address inequalities in health are important aspects of training to be a GP.
