 We provide a comprehensive range of GP services for you and your whole family.

Your private GP will be a highly qualified general practitioner who will get to know you well, because you will have the time to talk through all your needs and concerns in detail each time you see them.

Private GP services are offered within a modern, fully equipped hospital allowing fast access to a range of specialist diagnostic tests, such as blood tests, x-rays and scans.

Our test results are usually available within 48 hours and if needed your GP can make an immediate referral to consultants and specialists at the hospital. 

The private GP service also offers flexibility through convenient appointment times with many GPs working early mornings, evenings and even weekends.

Often appointment times are extended to ensure patients are seen and all concerns properly discussed and explored. Quality of care is not compromised by time constraints.

High-quality diagnostics and quick referrals mean that patients can progress with treatment as soon as possible which can be crucial when serious conditions are found. A smooth transition to wider healthcare services, specialist care and facilities will provide extra reassurance in times of illness or anxiety.

MRI scans

CT scans

Our expert radiographers can carry out CT scans without a lengthy waiting period. A CT scan is a special type of X-ray test that takes pictures of cross sections or slices of organs and structures in the body. These are used to create a 3-D picture of the body and are more detailed than a typical x-ray. CT scans are commonly performed on the head and abdomen.
