Hospitals staffed by general practitioners

This includes hospitals without full-time specialist doctors, particularly those without a fully trained general surgeon. Such hospitals may or may not have operating theatre capabilities. These facilities are usually referred to as district hospitals in Africa and primary health centres in India. In some areas, particularly in East Africa, certain medical assistants have been highly trained to act in the capacity of general practitioners, even performing operations such as Caesarean section. The facilities in which they work are more likely to fall into this category, rather than the basic designation above.
