Your Private GP Consultation
You will have 30 minutes with Dr Merron which allows time for you to discuss your concerns and symptoms without feeling rushed. It will also enable Dr Merron to gather the information She needs including details of your previous medical history together with any relevant lifestyle or family issues. At the end of your appointment you will receive an outcome letter which will confirm the details of your appointment including any diagnosis and recommended next steps.
The cost of a 30 minute appointment is £120. In addition to the consultation with the Dr Merron, your appointment will also include where appropriate:
Writing a private prescription
Providing a referral to a Consultant
Recommending and referring you for scans or x-rays
Undertaking lab investigations such as blood tests and highlighting what other tests you may need
You will be provided with an outcome letter detailing all of this, together with a copy to share with your NHS GP, should you choose to.
Any further investigations which you may require during or after your appointment, such as blood tests, scans, ECGs or X-rays are not included in the cost of your appointment. Before any such tests are completed Dr Merron will discuss with you why she thinks these tests should be carried out and the costs associated with them.
What to Bring to Your Appointment
It would be helpful if you could bring a list of any prescribed medications and supplements you currently take and also any drug allergies.
If you have any results or letters from specialists that you wish to discuss then please feel free to bring these with you.
Your consultation will be completely confidential. Notes are stored securely and you will receive a summary of your consultation by email or post which you can send to your GP. As per GMC best practice and GDPR, your information will not be shared with anyone without your consent unless you disclose something which could pose a serious risk to others. In this case Dr Merron will be legally accountable to share this information. If she believes this to be the case she will discuss this with you and seek consent prior to sharing information.
