During the current Corona virus situation, doctors in the National Health Service find themselves under a lot of pressure and it is often quite difficult to get an appointment. Due to the extreme pressure on the health service, you might not be able to get the best treatment available, with NHS GP appointments averaging the shortest time in Europe at just nine minutes per patient, before the pandemic.

There is another way for Private GP Consultation

A consultation with a Blood London doctor will give you an unlimited amount of time with your doctor, so that you can really talk about what your problem is.   The length of this appointment also allows you enough time to trust in your doctor, relax and feel comfortable during the consultation. Our Unlimited Consultations also allow enough time for your doctor to thoroughly perform an examination of your presenting problem if needed, and your family’s medical history to take a more holistic view of your problem.

Consultation with their GP with a physical examination followed directly by diagnostic testing if needed. Typically patients with a pre-existing condition can obtain a prescription at their first Consultation, however if we have ordered some tests, typically we will wait for the results to return, before you review the results with your doctor to come up with the appropriate treatment plan/referral. Any specialist referrals are carried out within a week of the referral itself.

What will be the charge for a private consultant appointment?

Ask us and we will be happy to tell you about the range of fees that the private medical consultants we deal with, charge. In fact when you see a consultant this might be considered the most important part of your private treatment. The consultant is the person who will be making your diagnosis and deciding on the course of treatment that will be most effective for you. Initially your GP will write a referral letter to the consultant that will explain the reasons that an appointment has been requested.  Consultants are at the top grade specialist doctor and will have spent on average nine years studying within the speciality, on top of their standard medical training, to have gained the title of Consultant. Consultants are the most experienced doctors and their private fees will reflect this.  Typically an appointment with the Consultant will cost £250, and this is what our internal Consultants charge. On occasion we may need to refer you to somebody outside of our clinic, who may charge more. This is largely dependent on your condition – an as example patients see our own Gynaecologist or Dermatologist, as we regularly refer patients for these services.

Typical charges for a private doctor

A typical private doctor appointment will cost £150, depending on the nature of the consultation.

How soon will I be able to get private GP appointment at Blood London?

If you have ever dealt with the NHS you will know how difficult it is to get an appointment on the same day.  It is a common complaint amongst NHS GPs but they don’t have enough time with their patients and that they’re working hours are constantly increased. There are even reports that almost half of GPs plan to leave the NHS within the next few years. We pride ourselves on offering same day and even emergency walk-in appointments. Our patients appreciate the fact that when they’re worried they can get answers and assistance, fast.

Why would it be better to me to go to the best private GP in London?

Because only the best will do for you! Choosing the right private GP in London can make a massive difference to the care that you receive and the access that you get to any consultant treatment you need. From easy access to appointments to easy access to the best medical professionals in the country, your health will be at the top of the agenda at all times.

Can I call an out of hours doctor for my child if I need one?

The NHS does provide accident and emergency services in hospitals and out of hours doctor services. These services usually start from around 6.30 in the evening and run through until about 8 o’clock in the morning on weekdays. During the weekends and bank holidays they will usually run all day.  At Blood London our walk-in service means that you can have direct access to our GP the same day you request.

Do I need to be referred to a private GP for my treatment?

No referral is necessary for private GP service, because they are also GPs, even although they do not work for the NHS.   It may be helpful however to have your notes from your NHS GP.

Can I continue to see my NHS GP even when I’m seeing a private GP?

Yes it is quite possible to keep your NHS GP as well as seeing one of our GPs at Blood London. It is possible that your private and NHS treatment may even be supervised by the same healthcare team depending on what treatment you are having. However it is important but you stick to either the NHS or private GP for the treatment of each condition to avoid confusion or duplication of treatment.

Do I need a referral from my GP to see a specialist?

Yes you will require a GP letter referring you for specialist treatment. This letter will also allow you to claim for any specialist treatment on your insurance.

Is there a charge by GPs for making a private referral?

No, we do not charge a referral fee.

What is the procedure for cancelling my appointment?

If you find that you no longer need your appointment, we ask that you contact us as soon as possible. If you need another appointment we will make one for you either at a different time on the same day or another date, to suit you.

Can a company or other organisation book an appointment for one of their clients or employees?

Yes at Blood London we see a lot of company employees.

Can children be seen at Blood London?

Yes we see people of all different ages, and we can use our network of specialists, including Paediatrics, to refer children for any further treatment they need.

What documentation do I need to register with Blood London?

It is not necessary to produce any documents when you register with us, but if you use a pseudonym, you must remember it so that we can find you in our system.

Could my Blood London GP refer me within the NHS?

Yes this is definitely can be done. Depending on what the problem is you will be advised on where and to whom a referral is advisable.

Can private treatment be given on the NHS?

Should your GP decide that you need to be seen by specialist, you can ask to have the treatment from a specialist, especially if you have private health insurance.

Do NHS doctors also work in the private sector?

Yes many senior doctors in the NHS also have private practices that they carry out along with their NHS work.

Are the most common reasons for needing an urgent GP appointment?

The reasons will often be the same whether you were seeing an NHS GP or private GP.  Usually things like accidents or sudden illness in a child. But this can be a struggle where NHS appointments are so booked up. At Blood London we’re happy to see patients the same day and as an emergency, if needed.

Would my private GP be able to see my NHS patient records?

No. At Blood London we would not have access to your NHS records.  But we will take full medical history and check on any pre-existing conditions and medication that may be relevant.

If I come to see a GP at Blood London, will they update my NHS GP?

At Blood London everything that happens in our clinic is fully confidential, and we do not share your personal details or records with anyone else. We will give you full details of your consultation either as a digital copy or a hardcopy, which you can take to your NHS GP, if you wish.

Will I see the same GP at the Blood London clinic each time I come?

Yes if you want to see the same doctor, when you make your appointment just specify that fact. However so that you’re not disappointed, if you do want to see the same GP try to call as far in advance as you can.

Do you offer the same services as an NHS doctor?

Yes at Blood London we do offer many of the services that your NHS doctor would offer. The difference is that you can have appointments fast and get your test results without any delay. We examine patients, diagnose them and issue prescriptions and advice, just as your NHS GP would do.  We can also prescribe birth control tablets. We can issue repeat prescriptions but you would need a consultation so that doctor could understand your condition and prescribe accordingly.
