Private GPs – FAQs
A private GP offers the same service as with a regular GP. However, we also offer;
- Well-woman and Well-man checks
- Intra articular joint injection for pain
- Assessment for chronic pain
- Smear tests
- Baby checks
- Dermatology expertise
The private GP service is ideal for patients who are unable to see their GP due to their working schedule. Many patients also choose to book in for a private GP consultation as they are given a longer appointment that with their regular GP.
The service is also popular with temporary residents/foreign nationals.
An initial consultation is between 30 and 45 minutes – possibly longer if required. Subsequent consultations can be 30 mins or 15 mins. Telephone consultations are also available (15 minutes is £40).
