Patient Centered Care

Our focus is on patient care and safety which is paramount. We have invested in a brand-new facility, state of the art equipment and in recruiting qualified and highly trained specialist staff.

We have extended consultation times which allows us to listen to our patients so we can understand what their concerns and circumstances are and offer the most effective and comprehensive treatment plan.

Healthcare how you want it, when you want it.

We recognise that the delivery of health services needs to adapt to the ever-changing lifestyles and pressure we all face. In order to allow our patients to optimise their time we offer multiple access methods, be that the traditional face to face consultation, telemedicine, video consultations or home visits.

Pricing

Like most other things in life, costs for healthcare seem to be continually increasing. In a time where accessing GP services is becoming ever more difficult many people are looking for cost effective private healthcare.

Our consultations start from £95 which we believe is both affordable and competitive.
