There are lots of medical conditions where it is not necessary to see a GP in the first instance. This may be because the condition is likely to be self-limiting, or there is a Clinician other than a GP better suited to help you. Please read the following information about self-care and self-referral in South Warwickshire. You can be reassured if the Clinician you initially see feels you require a Doctor to further assess you, we will always be able to provide you with an appointment.
