Why do I need to see a private GP?
Private GP Extra offers all the same services currently provided by your NHS GP with added benefits including:
- Flexible appointments at a time to suit you
- Extended GP appointment up to 60 mins available.
- Second opinion for peace of mind
- Health assessments
What will I be charged?
The charge is based on length of consultation (eg charge for 30 minutes is £115). Please ask about the charge for your consultation when booking your appointment. Any blood tests, x-rays or other investigations will be charged in addition to the consultation fee.
Do I have to be registered with an NHS to be seen?
No, we will see all patients whether they are registered with an NHS GP practice or not.
Can I use the service if I am a non UK resident?
Absolutely. Whether you are currently living abroad or travelling in the UK we can offer you a high quality GP service.
How easy is it to be referred to a Consultant?
Very easy. Direct referrals can be made to a wide range of Consultants. We are based in established hospitals where the best local Consultants currently see their patients. Due to our position and relationships with the hospitals, we can make a quick referral into the appropriate specialist.
Can you organise scans, test and investigations?
Yes. A wide range of tests can be carried out in the modern and fully equipped hospitals where we are based. We can organise an extremely wide range of blood tests, X-rays, ultrasound scans, CT and MRI scans.
Will my insurance cover the fees?
Whilst it is unlikely that your health insurance will cover the cost of the private GP appointment, most insurance policies will cover any investigations and referrals. Please check with your insurer to clarify your cover.
