What is a private GP appointment?
Private GP appointments are readily available to all members of the public, on a self-paying basis or by using private medical insurance. You can book a private GP appointment as often as you need, either for a one-off concern or for ongoing health issues.
Telephone & video consultations available
You can now book a telephone or video consultation with a Private GP to discuss your health concerns or treatment requirements. A telephone or video call is a perfect solution if you need to speak to a doctor during the COVID-19 lockdown as you can be consulted from the comfort of your own home and can avoid any direct contact or travelling to a clinic.
How do I book a telephone or video consultation?
Simply call our booking team on 03300 58 44 55 or complete an enquiry form opposite and ask for a telephone or video consultation. We have doctors available during the week with morning, afternoon and evening availability. Each 15-minute telephone or video call costs just £40.
When are the GP's available?
We try to have doctors available every day Monday to Saturday. Please call us or complete an enquiry form if you wish to hear our next available dates and times.
What happens during a video consultation?
Once you've booked a video consultation, you'll receive a confirmation email. When it's time for your appointment - you just need to click the link in your email and follow the simple instructions to join the GP.
Our video doctors are the same doctors that work in our clinics and your consultation will be done just the same as a face-to-face appointment. Our doctors will listen to your concerns and recommend the best next steps, whether that is a diagnosis, medical advice, prescription, tests or referrals to a specialist.
We understand that during this difficult time you will still have health issues that you would like to discuss with a qualified GMC registered doctor - which is why we have launched this new service
You can have your video consultation on any device you want; mobile, tablet, laptop or desktop computer. You will need a suitable wifi or internet connection, and provide permission to use your camera and microphone to be able to see and speak with the doctor.
All consultations are done through a secure line and completely confidential - we ask that find a quiet space and limit the amount of personal distractions so we can give you the best experience possible.
Standard GP appointments at Pall Mall Medical give you the option of 15, 30 or 45 minutes with our expert doctors so you will not feel rushed. This means you'll get quality time to discuss your health issues in detail with a medical expert and you will not be limited to a single issue or concern.
Appointments are available during our extended opening hours: 08:00-19:30 Monday-Friday and 10:00-14:00 on Saturdays. All appointments are completely confidential and using a private GP service will not affect your ongoing care with the NHS. We do not share records and we will only contact your NHS doctor on your request.
