Your GP

A GP is important for older people

“A good relationship with your GP is essential to your health”

Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, 2020

A GP is a general practitioner, a local doctor who cares for people of all ages, with many different health problems.

Your GP is an important member of the health care team who will care for you during and after your cancer treatment. If you have a good relationship with a GP before your cancer diagnosis, or you find a new GP after a cancer diagnosis, it’s important to keep seeing him or her regularly.
