Introduction

Codes of Practice of a General Practitioner Applied to Client 1 and Client 2 ?Make the care of my client their first concern; Applied: The GP's mobile phone must be turned off whilst he is in consultation with my clients. He might keep a 'Do not disturb' sign hung up on his door, so that there isn't people coming in and out while my client are being examined. Finally, he must always keep eye contact, so that my clients are able to see that the GP interested in helping them. ?Treat my clients politely and considerately; Applied: The GP might show respect and politeness towards my client1 by referring to her by her surname, as in Mrs. Collins. Also, the GP will not shout at my clients. ?Respect my clients dignity and privacy; Applied: The GP might leave my clients alone by closing curtains or getting out of the room while my clients might change clothes for possible practical tests, so that they have privacy and do not feel constringed. ...read more.

my client 2 may be involved with, for instance his throat treatment, to check that my clients understands whatever medical situation he may end up in. ?Keep you professional knowledge and skills up to date; Applied: The GP must always be up to date to new treatments that may be beneficial to my clients. He can contribute to that by going to conferences and courses. For example, my client 1 might want an appointment at a specific date but will find it not possible as her GP is away in a conference. She will be able to see the evidence as there will be certificates on the walls of the GP's room. This may increase my client's confidence in her GP as she will feel that he is updated with new technologies and treatments that could be beneficial to her in the future. ?Recognise the limits of your professional competence; Applied: The GP must always be able to notice when the limit of his area is and refer my clients to whichever specialists that may be needed. ...read more.

For instance, the GP might be very religious and so he could think that contraception is wrong, however he must put that aside as my client 1 chooses to use a contraceptive method. ?Act quickly to protect my clients from risk if you have good reason to believe that you or a colleague may not ne fit to practice; Applied: The GP will report any other health service if he has noticed they have been abusive to my clients. ?Avoid abusing your position as a doctor; Applied: The GP should not use his position to get to drugs that he should not be dealing with. Also, he should only do physical examinations on my clients when extremely necessary. ?Work with colleagues in the ways that best sere my clients' interests. Applied: The GP has to work together with other health services so that he provides the best care for my clients. For example, the dentist that is responsible for my client 2 receives information form my client's GP so that he is aware of the anaesthetic that my client could be allergic to. ?? ?? ?? ??
