About This Report


General medical practitioners (GPs) are primary caregivers (i.e. they are the first point of contact for people seeking health care) and they are trained in the total health care of the whole person. GPs are the gatekeepers in the health-care system, referring patients to secondary health-care providers like hospitals and medical specialists. The industry is overwhelmingly dominated by publicly funded practices, with private practices making up less than 5% of industry revenue. During the past five years, the industry has undergone a shake-up as the government cut funding for GPs in real terms and implemented a number of changes to how practices are funded and administered.

The General Medical Practices industry is composed of general practitioners (GPs) and their staff. Industry operators offer general medical consultations and treatment. Specialist medical treatment and paramedics are excluded from the industry.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
