Reasons For Going Private

< Back to Services.  

There are several advantages to opting for care from a Private GP in East Sussex and below we explain why it might be worth you considering using our service.

Prompt Appointments and Reduced Waiting Times

One of the most significant benefits of our GP service is the reduced waiting time you will experience.

We have more flexibility regarding patient appointments and often benefit from short booking times, which is not always possible elsewhere. Longer appointments mean that patients have sufficient time to have their concerns heard and can discuss their proposed care plans in more depth.

Appointments are available during weekdays, in the evenings and at weekends, making them accessible for those unable to take time off from their working day, or who need help with transport to appointments. 

Personalised and Comprehensive Care

We have a smaller patient list, which allows our GPs to spend more time with you. This personalised approach means that your doctor can thoroughly assess your health, provide tailored advice, and offer a more comprehensive healthcare experience. 

Our GPs will be able to offer initial advice on any health problem you have that is not an emergency. If they don’t have the expertise, they will help you find the best place to go to get the right advice. 

Some of the things people find us helpful for include:

  • Minor ailments (minor injuries, coughs, colds, aches & pains, skin problems, etc) 
  • Supporting long term condition management 
  • Prevention of conditions 
  • Mental health problems 
  • Sleep problems 
  • Taxi Medicals 
  • Mental Capacity Assessments 
  • Health Checks: In which we undertake a full medical, including ECG, Blood Pressure, height, weight and waist measurement cholesterol testing, blood sugar level testing, lipid testing, alcohol risk score, Diabetes risk assessment.  

Extended Consultation Times

The main reason that patients seek our Private GP Service is time, and even though there is a cost associated with private appointments, patients suffering from chronic or time-sensitive illnesses consider the level of patient care they receive from our service to be more than worth the expense. 

Our GPs can allocate more time for each consultation with you, enabling them to discuss all your concerns in detail and address any questions or uncertainties you may have, without rushing.

Access to Specialists

Our GPs have access to a network of specialists and consultants we can refer you to if necessary. This means that you can quickly access specialised care when required, without extended wait times that can be associated with NHS referrals. Alternatively, depending on your preference and budget, we can refer you to local NHS pathways.

Convenient Location and Flexibility

We are conveniently located in Hampden Park, served by a range of public transportation. You can choose an appointment at a time to suit you, for example in the evening or at weekends, which is helpful for people with busy schedules. 

Diagnostic Services

Our GPs can provide much of the same services as an NHS GP, including health checks, tests, and prescription medications. For those needing specialised care, working with one of our Private GPs can give you a sense of reassurance and security, as the extended interaction between doctor and patient typically supports a closer working relationship. 

We have on-site diagnostic services, such as blood tests and ECG’s. This means you can receive detailed results quickly and efficiently, allowing for faster diagnosis and treatment. You will be offered a follow-up appointment to discuss your results and provided with a copy of your consultations and results.
