What do adults see our GPs for?

Here’s a list of some things we see adult patients for. Some symptoms are best assessed by video, such as rashes or sports injuries, so please consider this when choosing whether to have a phone call or video call with a GP. The GP may advise a different appointment if they can’t assess you appropriately by phone.

  • Colds and Flu
  • Chest infection
  • Urinary Tract Infection
  • Diarrhoea
  • Nausea
  • Constipation
  • Other digestive symptoms such as heartburn
  • Rashes
  • Other skin symptoms such as lumps and bumps
  • Joint Pain
  • Depression
  • Fungal nail infections
  • Allergies
  • Sports Injuries
  • Lifestyle advice
  • Sexual Health advice
  • Medication advice

Helpful tip: If you can have any medication boxes, doctors letters or recent prescriptions to hand for your consultation, that can really help our GPs assess you.
