Private GP Service
Easy access to a GP
The Private GP Service at Rivers Hospital offers the convenience of flexible appointment times, currently Monday (all day) and Tuesday mornings. Same day appointments may also be available if needed, enabling you rapid access to a GP. Our 15-minute appointments mean that you will have sufficient time to discuss your health at length. There is no need to register with us, you can simply use the service on an odd occasion alongside your NHS GP service or as often as you want.
There is no need to register, simply call: 01279 602675 to book an appointment.
