GENERAL PRACTITIONERS

The General Practitioner is the local or family doctor who people visit when they feel physically unwell or are experiencing signs of stress, anxiety or depression. GPs generally do not specialise in the treatment of anxiety disorders although their experience gained in general practice should ensure that their patient is presented with a range of treatment options, which my include counselling and/ or medication. If the GP does not have the special skills to manage anxiety disorders they will be aware to whom the patient can be referred, in order to receive appropriate management. GPs can also investigate symptoms to exclude physical disease. This alone assists in diminishing anxiety. Please refer to the article in this Directory, which deals with the relationship between GP and patient.

Due to the diverse nature of a GPs role, and because they generally see patients for all their health problems. Few advertise that they have a special interest in treatment of anxiety disorders or any other form of mental disorder. The GPs in this Directory have indicated a special interest in anxiety disorders, but people should feel comfortable to discuss anxiety symptoms with their own GP.
