    Primary healthcare is GPs, secondary is district hospitals, tertiary are specialist centres. I think .

    Yep, think that's it *racks brains frantically for the pathetic amount of Medical Sociology we've been taught.* Primary healthcare also includes community things - pharmacists, friends, district nurses etc...

    We're all moving to a more primary centred approach to healthcare ie. the first port of call is the GP who will then refer you to secondary and tertiary services. Very different to other countries like the US where a lot of people go direct to specialist units.
