Read ahead for a step-by-step walkthrough of what to expect from your private GP appointment in 2023.

Selecting Your GP

Choosing a private GP for your healthcare needs is a significant decision that ensures personalised attention, and swift medical assistance. Private GP services offer a range of benefits, including shorter waiting times and extended appointment durations to assist you if needed. When selecting your private GP, take into account qualifications, experience, and areas of expertise to find a doctor who aligns with your health requirements. Providing accessible personalised medical care since 2017, Duality Health are more than happy to assist with an array of issues.

The Appointment Explained

A private GP appointment typically begins with a warm welcome from the clinical staff. Private GP services are well known for providing punctuality, so you can expect your appointment to start on time, while during the appointment, the doctor will take time to listen to your concerns and medical history. This thorough discussion forms the foundation for a comprehensive diagnosis. Private GP appointments are usually longer than NHS appointments too, allowing for a more in-depth examination and discussion compared with other offerings.

A Helpful Professional

One of the most noteworthy aspects of private doctors and professionals is dedication to patient care. Private GPs pride themselves on fostering a comfortable and open doctor-patient relationship. You can expect your private GP to not only address your immediate health issues but also provide guidance on preventive care, lifestyle adjustments, and any concerns you might have. This personalised approach is especially beneficial if you require ongoing medical attention or have chronic health conditions which mean regular visits to the GP.

Assorted Services

Private GP appointments encompass a wide array of services beyond diagnosing acute illnesses, and these services include health screenings tailored to your age, gender, and medical history. These screenings can detect potential health risks early on, enabling proactive interventions. Whether you need a medical certificate for work or a fitness-to-travel certificate, private GPs can provide the necessary documentation efficiently.

At Duality Health our experienced clinical team can provide the full range of General Practice Services as well as those you would ordinarily require onward referral for. Assisting individuals, families, and organisations in need of urgent treatment, our in-depth GP consultations are a reliable alternative to NHS care, so contact us today on 028 3083 3666.
