At The Edinburgh Clinic, we understand just how difficult it is 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 immediate appointment for the same day or within 24 hours*
Any appointments that are not attended or are cancelled within 24 hours are subject to the full consultation charge being applied.
*Subject to availability, Monday to Friday.
We provide the opportunity to arrange a GP appointment for a date and time that best suits you. And if you don’t want the worry of waiting to discuss a particularly concerning health issue, you can usually arrange to be seen on the same day or within the next 24 hours.
The pressure on GPs these days means that they can only realistically spend 10 minutes with each patient. At The Edinburgh Clinic, our standard consultation time with a GP is 30 minutes, with longer appointment times up to an hour also available if you feel this could be of greater benefit to you.
Fast access to specialist consultants
If clinically justified following your initial GP appointment, we can arrange a speedy onward referral to the most appropriate choice of specialist from our panel of over 100 consultants.
Choosing our Private GP service also offers immediate access if required to our extensive in-house diagnostic imaging facilities including X-ray, Ultrasound, CT, MRI and DXA scanning.
Under the umbrella of our Private GP service, we offer a comprehensive choice of general and specialist health screening services from mole assessments to prostate, bowel and osteoporosis screening.
If you run a business, you’ll know how important it is to look after the health and wellbeing of your employees. As your private health partner, we can provide a tailored GP service geared to the specific needs of your business from pre-employment medicals to travel health screening and vaccinations for staff about to work abroad.
The service is perfect if you are a visitor to Edinburgh and need a doctor’s appointment at short notice. Our exemplary service ensures that our patients are seen promptly, are accurately assessed and properly treated.
