— If you have serious concerns – for instance, you have felt a lump in your breast, the family physician will send you to a specialist, where you will receive secondary care. These professionals are cardiologists, surgeons or dermatologists. Most of the times they work in hospitals that are why secondary care is used as a synonymous to hospital care.

— Tertiary care is a consultation for patients who had a cancer or who had burns on their bodies and need professional support. Although these patients may be physically cured, their psyche needs to be cured as well.
