Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The General Practice Medical Services industry has grown healthily over the past five years. General practitioners (GPs) are the first point of contact in the medical system, providing direct treatment to patients or diagnosing their problem and referring the patient to a specialist or a general hospital.

This means that more patients have been able to visit their GP for health problems without any out-of-pocket cost.
