What is General Medicine?


General medicine is the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and management of acute and long-term medical conditions and symptoms. It is often called internal medicine and is an extremely broad speciality.
We're proud to work with highly experienced consultant physicians across the diverse medical fields of rheumatology, endocrinology, haematology, respiratory medicine, pain management and elderly care.
Our physicians focus on the early investigation of unexplained and worrying symptoms including shortness of breath, stomach pain, high temperature, fatigue and fainting.

They also treat and manage a range of long-term illnesses such as diabetes and respiratory problems.
