    The paper presents an investigation into the development history and current status of Chinese General Practitioner (GP) system and an exploratory comparison between the same and its British counterpart. The research findings contribute to the theoretical knowledge of the difference and similarity between the UK and Chinese GP systems and facilitate in harnessing the opportunity for British or any other countries' healthcare service providers willing to access the Chinese healthcare marketplace. This study helps to provide a firsthand account of how the Chinese GP system operates. This knowledge can be of immense help for organizations and countries which have the requisite expertise and are looking at expanding their business horizons. China could be a good opportunity.
