Private GP services

At the The Shirley Oaks Hospital, we know how busy life can be and how difficult it sometimes is to get a timely GP appointment that suits you and your schedule.

COVID-19 update

Our GP Service is currently unavailable, we hope to be able to open this service again soon.

Our GP Service provides high quality, consistent medical care for you and your whole family. The service is performed by seven local community GPs and operates across The Shirley Oaks Hospital, Monday to Saturday each week. 

Your private GP will be a highly qualified general practitioner who will get to know you well. At each appointment you will have the time to talk through all your needs and concerns in detail. Your private GP will take a proactive and complete approach to your health, offering personal, confidential advice. Should you need it, your GP can make an immediate referral to consultants and specialists at the hospital.

The service is suitable for the whole family, covering both adult and paediatric medicine. We only see patients over the age of 3 years old.

Driving and overseas visas medicals are amongst the range of services offered. Please call for further information.

Whether you just need more time, a convenient appointment, or you want a second or private opinion, our private GP service is there for you.
