Private GP Service.

The Independent General Practice

What to expect from our Private GP service

The Independent General Practice (IGP) is a private GP service which offers professional patient care, treatment & advice to individuals, families and businesses. This service is very similar to the kind of service that you would find with your own NHS GP, but with extra flexibility & choice.

IGP Patients have direct access to the very best in private healthcare services enabling you and your family to get the right advice when needed through independent opinion and if necessary specialist referral. We pride ourselves on offering outstanding patient care from the moment an enquiry is made, until a solution is found.

Registered & Unregistered Patients

You do not need to be registered with us to be seen by our doctors. However, through our range of Patient Healthcare Plans, patients are able to spread costs and receive additional private healthcare member benifits.

Private Healthcare Plans


We can offer appointments at times that are convenient to you and we aim to see patients on the day that the enquiry is made. We also have evening surgeries for those who require appointments outside of standard work hours. You and your family will then have more time with the doctor, as appointments are at least 20 minutes. However, more time can be made available with the doctor if you require. Due to our special relationships with consultants & specialists we can, if need be, arrange referrals or further diagnostic screenings significantly faster than you would expect on the NHS; usually within just a few days.

If you are unable to attend an appointment in person at one of our locations we are able to carry out an appointment online using our video consultation application.

Online Appointments


During your appointment, if clinically appropriate, we can issue you with a private prescription. This can be taken by you to your local pharmacy of choice or we can fax the prescription to a nominated pharmacy for you to collect at a time convenient to you.

Please note that we can only issue a private prescription and repeat prescription if the medication is clinically indicated. These prescriptions do not qualify as NHS fixed charge (or free) prescriptions and you will need to pay the price of the medication charged by the pharmacy.


In some case you can self-refer to consultants in specific areas of medicine. However, in most cases a referral will be necessary. We are able to refer you privately to see a private consultant or specialist.

The first step in arranging an appointment with a consultant is to arrange an appointment with one of our GP's to ensure the clinical appropriateness of the referral and to the consultant you will be seeing. Following your appointment with one of our GP's we will directly contact the consultant who will then organise an appropriate and convenient appointment for you.
