General practitioners are on the frontline of ensuring good health for the population, and helping us all stay well.
At Blood London our GP will be able to screen for any common conditions or risk factors that you may have, and make sure they are identified early so that you get to live life to the fullest. General Practitioners can also help you with those niggling little everyday problems that may not appear too serious but do keep cropping up again and again.
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.

The Diagnosis process
Your Blood London GP will take full notes of everything you tell him or her to go into your full clinical file, kept here at the clinic for 7 years. Offering direct access to diagnostic testing during one appointment, typically patients experience the following:
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.
