Putting prevention into practice (Green Book)


The principles of being patient centred, adopting a population approach, and addressing health inequalities and disadvantage are considered to be very important by most state, national (and many international) health services, organisations and agencies. Other pertinent principles include:

  • focusing on what GPs are interested, competent, prepared and able to do
  • acknowledging the GP as one of the key players in an effective primary health care system184
  • the importance of partnerships and collaboration.
