What is Primary & Secondary Care?
Primary care is the first point of contact for someone when they contract an illness, suffer an injury or experience symptoms that are new to them. It is generally regarded as the ‘gateway’ to receiving more specialist care. This contact will be with a GP, Dentist or Optician.
Secondary care is a patient who has been provided with primary care may be referred to a secondary care professional – a specialist with expertise on the patient’s issue. These are consultant-led services which include psychology, psychiatry and orthopaedics.
