Welcome to Duality Healthcare Northern Ireland, where a commitment to excellence in healthcare defines our mission.

We have a growing network of Private GP Clinics across NI and aim to bring Private General Practice to every corner of the North. We provide rapid access to appointments, late night opening, weekend clinics & a 7-day service.

Our Virtual GP Service, ensures access to our network of NI clinicians from any internet-connected device. No matter where you live, we can ensure you have access to Duality expertise, reliability & reassurance in an affordable manner.

Not just a GP Service…

A wide range of additional services

Our clinics are designed to facilitate rapid access to GP Services 7 days a week.

We have a greater degree of in-house diagnostics & services compared to an NHS Surgery – who would have to refer you to hospital for further investigation.

We also feel patients should have access to diagnostic services themselves – you know your own worries & concerns – that’s why you can book blood tests, investigations & scans yourself – without a GP referral. Be mindful to speak to one of our GPs if you have unexplained symptoms or your results throw up something abnormal!

I Love Duality Healthcare,

The most professional, competent, reassuring and friendly service I have ever encountered.

Frequently Asked Questions

Questions about Private Healthcare and using our service ? Well, we’ve got answers.

Can I keep my NHS GP?

Yes. We never recommend that you leave your NHS surgery. However, Duality Healthcare can completely replace your NHS care, should you wish. Alternatively you can use us to top-up your care or as an accessible alternative whilst using both systems – it’s your choice.

Can you refer me to the NHS?

Yes we can. As an NHS entitled patient we can refer you to the NHS.

With current waiting times it is likely that you will want us to refer you to the Private Sector on the majority of occasions. But should you wish an NHS referral this can be easily facilitated.

Do I need a referral to get bloods or scans?

Not at all. You can book an appointment yourself for bloods, an Ultrasound, Liver Fibroscan or Echocardiogram.

However, if you have symptoms or worries we would suggest booking an appointment with a GP to discuss these before booking bloods & scans, as these can be falsely reassuring without the consideration of a Doctor’s expertise.

You should definitely follow-up with a GP for any abnormal results – our clinics should be able to facilitate you with one of our Duality GPs within 24 hours.

Can you provide an interpreter with my GP Appointment?

We do recommend that you bring someone along with you if you think there may be language or communication difficulties during your appointment.  

However, if this is not possible we recommend you engage a telephone interpreter for which you will pay the cost, depending on the length of the consultation. See links below to interpreter companies based in Northern Ireland.

What tests can I get done at the clinic?

Duality can undertake blood tests, 24-hour blood pressures, spirometry, ECGs. We can arrange and undertake blood tests privately via our private pathology provider Randox Health.

You don’t attend many NHS GPs with an Ultrasound or Echocardiogram Service in-clinic. But that’s what we have. Advanced diagnostic imaging in-house to aid our GP team in making the most accurate diagnosis & best management plan for you.

Can you get me seen quicker by a consultant?

With our new partnership with the Kingsbridge Hospital Group, at Duality Healthcare we can guarantee you are seen faster than anyone else, including your GP. From June 2024 we will be able to book your Kinsbridge appointment before you leave clinic. As there is little-to-no wait for our GPs you will naturally be seen ASAP by our Private Consultant colleagues.

Can you give me a prescription or a sick-note?

A prescription, referral and/or sick-note is included in the price of all our consultations – so if you need any of these we will provide what is clinically appropriate. As our prescriptions are private you will have to pay at the chemist for the cost of any medication – don’t worry, most medications are off patent and a lot cheaper than you may imagine.
