Why is it important to have a regular GP

Having a regular GP is important for your health. This is called ‘continuity of care’.

At Adelaide Disability Medical Services, our GPs are experienced in working with people who have a disability and complex care needs.

We endeavour to book you with your usual GP for appointments as often as possible.

A regular GP is important because:

  • Your GP is your healthcare coordinator
  • Your GP knows your health conditions and what medications you are taking.
  • Your GP understands your disability and how this impacts your life.
  • Your GP can work with you and your care providers to get the best possible outcome for you including improving your health and quality of life.
