Wednesday 24 August 2016

What is the Private GP Service?

This Private GP service is able to offer private 20 minute consultations with one of a team of locally established senior GP’s, in convenient late evening and Saturday appointments.

Our confidential service is able to offer advice on a wide range of primary care problems (eg well man/woman; contraception and sexual health; dermatology and musculoskeletal) in a relaxing, patient centred environment. We can provide and prescribe treatment for many acute problems, as well as offering screening and advice on maintaining a healthy lifestyle. We are also able to arrange private sector referrals, for investigations and specialist opinions.

Whilst not seeking to replace the role of the NHS GP, we recognise that an increasing number of patientshave difficulty accessing their GP at times convenient for them.

Whilst we can advise on long term conditions, we regret we are unable to provide care for monitoringof long term conditions, or prescriptions for controlled drugs.

Consultations for overseas patients who require medical advice or treatments are also welcomed.

Clinics will run on a weekly basis at the following times:

Monday evenings: 7:00pm – 8:30pm

Wednesday evenings: 6:00pm – 8:00pm

Saturday mornings: 9:30am – 11:30am
