General Questions

Do I have to pay for the services?

No,because the service is not covered by the NHS. It is Private service and full payment is required.

I only need the doctor's signature-what is the problem?

When a doctor signs a certificate or completes a report, it is a condition of remaining on the Medical Register that they only sign what they know to be true.  Therefore, in order to complete even the simplest of forms, the doctor needs to check the patient’s entire medical record.  Carelessness or an inaccurate report can have serious consequences for the doctor, with the General Medical Council or even the Police.

How much is the doctors fee?

Every doctor/specialist has own fees and all payments are based on the individual factors, conditions and services provided. For full price guidlines, please contact our reception desk.

How qualified are your doctors?

All of our private doctors work with us on a permanent basis. They are all appropriately qualified and experienced to work in both the NHS and in private medical practices / the independent healthcare sector. All doctoes are registered to practise in the UK.

Can you provide medicines?

We do not provide medications at present time. Please, keep checking and we will update the section as soon as we are ready to do so.

Can you take blood samples for testing?

In many cases the doctor can take a blood sample on the visit and have it couriered direct to our lab from your address. In other cases, we can take samples in our clinic. We have a particular focus on diagnostics, with ample physician time backed up by rapid pathology and on-site radiology in our clinic.

Can you make referrals?

Yes, we can make referrals and we charge a fee for the service. If you need to be referred for hospital or specialist treatment, we can refer you to either a private or NHS hospital. A good and efficient referral to the right specialist or medical unit can make a huge difference to your medical outcome.

Can you provide out-of-hours cover?

We can not provide out of hours cover at the moment. Please, contact A&E in such case.
