But what if there was a way of combining the personal service and attention that we used to receive, with the state of the art medical care that is now available. Wouldn’t that be the best of both worlds?
When they set up in 2013, Concierge Medical had this ambition firmly in mind. They wanted to provide a comprehensive private GP service that delivers high-quality modern medicine but in a very traditional way – and that’s what they do.
So what does this actually mean?
It boils down to three things – promptness, convenience and personal care.
Promptness means that when you are ill a doctor visits you the same day, the day that you call them. It also means that if you need tests or need to visit a specialist, it is handled quickly and efficiently – you don’t wait weeks for results or follow-up appointments.
Convenience is simple, it means you see a doctor in your home (or office if you prefer) at a time to suit you. No ifs, no buts.
Personal care means you have your own GP, you see the same doctor each time. The doctor spends time with you and because there is no rush to see the next patient, a relationship built on continuity, trust and understanding is established.
And all of this is delivered without compromising on the quality of medical advice and expertise. And if proof were needed that their service is of the highest standards, Concierge Medical passed the most recent Care Quality Commission inspection (January 2018) with flying colours.
