General and Family Medicine plays a crucial role in the prevention of illness and promotion of health and well-being of EVERYONE. General and Family Medicine is a specialty dedicated to the provision of primary health care consisting of comprehensive medical interaction throughout our lifetime, centred on the individual circumstances of their familial, professional, social and cultural lifestyles.
The importance of a global and consistent approach to health issues, related to the specific characteristics of each person, is reflected in the role of the general physician. In effect the general physician should be the binding link between the patient and the health care network they may require. In this context, and reflecting in the project conceived by Luzdoc, the Family Medicine Department allows for direct access to all other available health care professionals in the Luzdoc network, as well as other health care providers that may be deemed necessary, providing for all clients who want personalised care, along with technical competence of reference.
