Private GP Consultations

Private GP consultations and Private Doctor Consultations may be booked for 15mins, 30mins, 45mins or 1 hr appointments. We usually recommend a 30-45min first appointment as the doctor will want to cover your medical history with you and allow enough time to discuss your current issues.

Appointments are usually available within 48hrs. If urgent you can usually be seen on the same day. If however the doctor is away you may choose to book an appointment with one of our Practice Nurses. Telephone consultations are also available (but not usually for first appointments).

Fees are as per the ‘Fees‘ section of this website. Blood tests, urine tests or any other tests or services are charged in addition to the Doctor consultation fee.

All private patients are required to pay their fees in cash or by credit card prior to leaving the surgery. Companies may pay on submission of our invoice subject to prior agreement.

Consultations are available for any of the services listed under the ‘Our Services’ section of this website but may include general, specific or chronic health problems, health checks, occupational health services, cosmetic treatments, nutritional advice and testing, as well as mental health & wellbeing.
