What are the benefits of seeing a Private GP?


GP waiting times are getting longer, which means that essential investigations are delayed and that the period between noticing symptoms, having an examination, investigations, diagnosis and treatment can be counted in months – even years.

A private GP practice can offer a level of flexibility and speed of service that is not usually possible with conventional NHS GP services. We can also offer longer appointments, meaning we have more time to listen to any concerns, understand them, and make effective management plans. It also means that our appointment times are more accurate – with that little bit of extra personal time, we know we’ll get to our patients as promised.

In addition, a private GP who works for a diverse private hospital group has immediate access to investigations and treatments, often with no waiting time at all. With those close links to a multi-disciplinary health and hospital group, a private GP has the benefit of a collaborative team, in-house referrals, timely and accurate medical imaging and investigation services, and specialist interventions.


What can a private GP do for you?

Our GP services include a wide range of services, including:

  • General health checks and advice
  • Health screens

  • Women’s and Men’s Health

One Hatfield Hospital is closely allied with other healthcare professionals, specialists and consultants within our group. In-house referrals to our other services, including medical imaging and treatment packages, mean that you can expect a seamless, streamlined service and important continuity of care.

A private GP has the benefit of more choice over who you see, with some of our experienced general practitioners taking a special interest in certain conditions. We can provide bespoke routine health checks, such as our well man or well woman clinics tailored to your specific health risks and needs as an individual.
