General practice is the corner stone of primary health care. The general practitioner sees patients of all ages, and serves as an individual's primary-care provider and access point to specialists and specialized testing. The general practice doctor provides well visits for children and adults, sick visits for the treatment of acute conditions, and introductory care for diseases such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol. The work of the general practice team takes place within the context of the primary healthcare setting.

Rural general practitioners are more likely to be able to provide in-hospital care as well as private consulting room care, to provide afterhours services, to engage in public health roles expected of them by discrete communities in which there are few doctors to choose from, to engage in clinical procedures, to engage in emergency care, to encounter a higher burden of complex or chronic health presentations. Rural doctors acquire suitable clinical and communication skills to meet the diverse needs of their patients, as well as an understanding of rural culture.

General practitioners have traditionally focused on providing primary care to individuals who present to their medical practice with various illnesses. This patient-centric approach has its philosophical underpinnings in a biomedical view of disease that emphasises an individual focus. Public health on the other hand focuses on the health of the entire population and is underpinned by addressing the social determinants of health. Such a model tends to privilege the needs of the population over the needs of the individual.
