Our private General Practitioners (GP) can help with a wide range of medical issues and concerns, similar to what you might expect from an NHS GP.


How does a private GP appointment differ from an NHS GP?

NHS GP surgeries are increasingly stretched, with demand exceeding the supply of clinicians. The result is that it can be hard to get an appointment, and when you do get an appointment it may not be with a Doctor, and it may be quite short.


Conversely, within a Mayfield Clinic private GP appointment, you will always be consulting with a GP, and appointments are generally extended so you are not rushed in outlining the matter to the doctor.


What services do private GPs offer?

We can often offer additional services and benefits due to our ability to dedicate more time to each patient and access to a broader range of resources. Here are some of the types of matters we can help with:

  • Routine Medical Care: Our Private GPs provide routine medical care such as check-ups, physical examinations, and vaccinations.

  • Diagnosis and Treatment of Common Illnesses: Our GPs can diagnose and treat common illnesses and conditions like colds, flu, infections, allergies, and minor injuries.

  • Prescriptions and Referrals: Mayfield GPs can prescribe medications and refer patients to specialists or for further diagnostic tests if needed. We have a range of private consultants that we are able to refer on to in London and Oxford.

  • Health Screenings: We can offer comprehensive health screenings for conditions such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.

  • Health Promotion and Preventive Care: Our GPs provide advice on maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including diet, exercise, and stress management. We also have access to a Health & Exercise Consultant for specific advice in this domain.

  • Mental Health Support: Private GPs can offer initial assessment and management of common mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, and stress. We also have a Clinical Psychologist in-house (Dr Kirren Schnack) who we refer on to

  • Women's Health: We provide services related to women's health, including contraceptive advice, cervical screening (smear tests), and menopause management.

  • Men's Health: Our GPs can offer services tailored to men's health needs, including prostate checks and erectile dysfunction treatment.

  • Travel Health: We can provide advice and vaccinations for travellers, including those going abroad for business or leisure.

Overall, our private GPs offer personalised, timely care with longer appointment times and more flexibility.
