A service which requires of the General Practitioner a selective history and examination of the patient, to assess and manage the problem.
- Extended Service (Level C)
A service distinguished by more complex tasks required of the general practitioner when confronted with several alternative diagnoses which require a detailed history, multiple system examination, possible investigations and management.
