At The Edinburgh Clinic, we understand that it’s difficult for busy GPs to meet the needs of all their patients in the way they would ideally like.
That’s why we’ve introduced our own Private GP service, offering patients quick and easy access to a fully qualified NHS trained GP whenever they wish – including the reassurance of being able to arrange an appointment at short notice.

Through our private GP service we are usually able to offer an appointment for the same day or within 24 hours of you making contact. We also provide the opportunity to arrange a GP appointment for a date and time that best suits you.
By offering this flexibility we can help you avoid the worry of waiting to discuss any health issues you may have. Appointments can take place Monday to Friday and are subject to availability
Not only can it be hard to get an appointment at short notice, but the pressure on GPs means that they can often only spend a short time with each patient, with appointments as short as 10 minutes becoming the norm.
At The Edinburgh Clinic, our standard consultation time with a GP is 30 minutes, with longer appointment times of up to an hour also available if you feel this would be of greater benefit to you.
If you have arranged an appointment at The Edinburgh Clinic which is in the future, you can cancel it without charge up to 48 hours in advance.
Any appointments that are not attended or are cancelled within 48 hours of the scheduled time are subject to the full consultation charge being applied.
