Speak to someone when you need it

If you need prompt advice, we do our best to provide private pay as you go GP appointments on the same day or the very next day. Some appointments may be available during evenings and weekends.

In your appointment you can get private prescriptions and, where appropriate, short-term sick notes††. Some tests and referrals are available but these may come at an extra cost. The GP will discuss these with you.

If you have a medical emergency, please don't wait for a GP appointment with us even later in the day. Call 999 or go straight to A&E.

A medical emergency includes things like:

  • chest pain
  • severe or sudden breathing difficulties
  • suspected stroke or seizure
  • bleeding heavily

What people are saying about our services

“The GP was very understanding and patient and the appointment did not feel rushed. She went through all my symptoms, listened to my questions and concerns and was very thorough in her explanations of the various prescriptions available and their associated risks.”

“Being able to speak to someone who was knowledgeable and being able to get an appointment when it was convenient for me - I felt listened to and that the Doctor cared.“

What’s next?

^ We may record or monitor our calls.

Bupa GP appointments are only available to persons aged 18 years and older.

The cost of the medication is not included in the plan and will need to be paid directly to the pharmacy you choose to get your medication from. Costs of medication vary.

We currently do not provide minor surgery or a dressings service and do not prescribe controlled drugs. For example, morphine medications or certain sedatives. But, we can refer you to an appropriate service for help with conditions requiring such medications.

†† Bupa clinics can only provide sick certification for a maximum of 7 days during an illness episode. The sick note that we issue is our own certificate (at present we do not issue med3 or statement of fitness for work “fit note” certificates), it is only advisory and cannot be used for Social Security or Statutory Sick Pay purposes. For further sick certification for the same health issue, customers should be advised to contact their regular GP service under which they are registered as patients.

Bupa Health Assessments and Private GP Services are provided by Bupa Occupational Health Limited. Registered in England and Wales No. 631336. Registered office: 1 Angel Court, London EC2R 7HJ
