GPs, dentists and pharmacies

Patients receive the best care when they work in partnership with doctors.

What to expect from your doctor: a guide for patients explains how you can help to create a partnership with your doctor. Much of it is simply common sense, but following it should help you get the most out of your time with your doctor.

It is based on the standards the General Medical Council (GMC) sets for doctors in our core guidance Good medical practice.
