Patient centred care
NHS independence enables us to provide patient centred not target driven care.
We are subject to the rigorous scrutiny and licensing process of the Care Quality Commission.
Low patient-doctor ratios
We carefully manage the number of patients we look after. This ensures convenient and prompt access to our medical team and the highest levels of care.
Longer surgery consultations
Our standard consultations of up to 30 minutes give us ample opportunity to properly understand and discuss the health concerns of our patients.
Extended surgery hours
Our extended weekday and weekend opening hours enable us to offer more convenient access to a GP or nurse outside of the normal working day.
Our surgeries offer comfortable and relaxed environments.
Optional 24-hour access
VIP24 and VIP24+ members can contact our on-call doctor out-of-hours when the surgery is closed. This includes weekends and bank holidays. The GP will visit you at home if necessary.*
Referral to private specialists
We have good knowledge of and access to a wide network of both local and London based private consultants.
Working with your NHS GP
With patients’ consent we can liaise with NHS GPs.
