Private General Practice

We provide complete physical and mental health services through our team of GPs, all of whom have extensive experience and knowledge of acute medical issues as well as chronic disease management.

Our general medical services include health surveillance, immunisations and vaccinations, family planning and an on site pharmacy dispensing frequently prescribed medications so there is no need for you to go to a pharmacy if you are feeling unwell.

We understand the value of your time, and continuously strive to see you promptly; you will almost always be able to see the doctor of your choice for continuity, and at a time and date of your choice. If you are acutely unwell we will always make space to see you on the same day.

We encourage our patients to come in for routine medicals and preventative medicine/screening and we find consistently that this not only helps to detect any early signs of disease but also improves treatment results.

Because of our convenient Central London location, many of our patients do not have the inconvenience of taking time off work to visit the Doctor.

We provide the majority of our services on site as a further convenience to you. We take blood ourselves, record ECGs ,as well as audiometry and vision screening and lung function tests (spirometry).

The Practice complies with all national regulatory standards and we are registered with the Care Quality Commission. We follow all BMA guidelines with regard to security of access to medical records, with back up procedures for all patient files.

We maintain close links to the best local specialists and have intimate knowledge of areas of subspecialties, so you can be confident that any referral we make will be with a leader in their field.

We also provide 24-hour telephone availability for advice to patients who are registered with the Practice.

FAQ

Have some Questions?

A half hour appointment will be made in order to deal with any acute problem and also to go through our patient registration process.

The office is open between 8am to 6pm Monday to Thursday, and 8am to 5.30pm on Fridays.

Outside office hours, the 24 hour telephone line will be picked up by an answerphone which will give instructions regarding contacting the doctor on call. The doctor will give telephone advice and where appropriate will supply prescriptions through to pharmacies. If a visit is required we utilise a deputising service for this. Under certain circumstances it may be appropriate to arrange admission to hospital directly which we can do. Please note that the above services are only available to patients who are already registered with the Practice and there is a charge for out of hours advice and services for those patients who are not monthly subscribers.

We value your feedback; good or bad, so please let us know.We carry out and publish annual patient satisfaction surveys. We are registered with The Care Quality Commission that regulates health and social care throughout England. We also have a formal complaints procedure if things have gone really badly and this can be accessed by contacting the Practice Manager.

The general answer to this is “No”. UK based Private Health Insurance companies will usually only recognise for the purposes of reimbursement, the services of individuals whom they define as Specialists.

We do not generally deal directly with insurance companies and work on the basis of individuals and corporations settling their own accounts and then claiming back directly with their respective insurance companies.

You can register at your first consultation with an acute problem or choose to register ahead of this. You will then pay for individual consultations, out of hours telephone advice and repeat prescription requests and referrals. Laboratory fees and vaccinations/drugs are additional where appropriate.

You will be entitled to an annual flu vaccination and an annual health screening check as part of this subscription.

Subscriptions are at the discretion of the doctors. Cancellation can be made at any time after the initial 12 month period by either the patient or the Practice. Laboratory fees and vaccinations/drugs are additional where appropriate.

The practice is registered with the Care Quality Commission, an executive non-departmental public body of the Department of Health and Social Care, responsible for the regulation and inspection of health and social care services in England.

Flu and Pneumonia Vaccinations

This is the first winter that seasonal influenza virus will co-circulate alongside the Covid-19 pandemic. Mathematical modelling suggests the winter 2021/2022 influenza season will not only begin earlier than normal, but it could also be 50% larger than typically seen.

 

Pneumonia affects 1 in 100 people. In addition to flu vaccine, we would now strongly recommend a pneumonia vaccine which protects against 23 bacterial strains.

 

Our vaccines will be available to administer from 15th September.

 

We can provide mobile flu clinics to your workplace for the whole team, or home appointments for individual patients and their families. Alternatively, clients can book an appointment at the Practice between 8am and 6pm Monday to Friday.
