Abstract:

Consultations with doctors can take place in doctors' offices or clinics, in hospital outpatient departments or, in some cases, in patients' own homes. In many European countries (e.g. Denmark, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, the Slovak Republic, Spain and the United Kingdom), patients are required, or given incentives to consult a general practitioner (GP) "gatekeeper" about any new episode of illness. The GP may then refer them to a specialist, if indicated. In other countries (e.g. Austria, the Czech Republic, Iceland, Japan and Korea), patients may approach specialists directly.
