What happens during a VIDA private GP appointment

A private GP appointment at VIDA Clinics allows one of our physicians to conduct a full examination of your general health. This includes a review of your medical history, candid discussions of your current health concerns, and any physical examinations we deem necessary. VIDA Clinics work with a variety of local specialists which we can refer our guests to if your needs demand it. This enables us to provide a high quality of care to those who book a private GP appointment with us. 

Many people get concerned about the price of a private GP appointment in comparison to a public one. Although there are potential benefits that can warrant choosing a private GP. This includes being seen quickly, professionally, and receiving care that is tailored to your needs. We believe the price is well worth it, especially in cases where serious conditions are revealed. 

Why book a private GP appointment? 

For those who need to see a medical professional quickly, a private GP appointment offers a range of treatment options with little to no waiting list. Our private GP appointments put you in touch with an expert who will be able to answer a wide range of questions you might have about your health. By simply filling out a contact form or getting in touch with a phone call, you can book an appointment and be seen at a time that suits your lifestyle. Oftentimes, delays in seeing a doctor can lead to more stress or allow unknown conditions to become worse. 

With a private GP, you are often able to build up trust more easily than when visiting an NHS clinic. Over the years, our qualified professionals have gained knowledge of our guests on a personal level that allows us to make their experience visiting us as enjoyable as possible. We are partnered with a range of specialists around Merseyside to deliver effective referral treatments when necessary.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a private GP?

A private GP is a medical professional that possesses the knowledge needed to assess people’s health. They perform a similar function to a GP you can see through the NHS, except they are more readily available through private clinics. Learn more in our blog about what a private GP does.

Do I need a GP referral to go private?

There is no requirement that stipulates a need to be referred by your normal GP if you want a consultation or treatment with a private consultant. However, the British Medical Association (BMA) advises those who need specialist treatment are referred by their GP. This is because they will have a detailed knowledge and understanding of their medical history and can advise on the referral.

At VIDA Clinics our appointments are designed to ensure guests feel completely reassured that their concerns have been addressed through a dedicated service from our experienced GPs, whether ongoing care is needed or if the issue can be resolved straight away. We strive to always provide the best quality of care from start to finish.
