“Our mission is to provide our members with the very best medical care available anywhere in the UK.”

Founded in 2013, Concierge Medical has progressed to become a national award-winning private General Practice, providing the best healthcare to individual clients and businesses throughout The Cotswolds and surrounding areas.

A passionate belief that quality modern healthcare can be delivered in a way that both understands and meets the needs of our patients underlies our service.

Recognising that good medicine is always about a strong mutual relationship with your doctor; trust, discretion, professionalism are of course expected, but that time to listen and understand is also so critically important.

We’ve turned away from the traditional rushed and pressured appointments of a traditional surgery, to one that values the doctor patient relationship, its benefits, and its sustainability for the future.

By strictly limiting our client membership, you will always be guaranteed a quality level of service that is always responsive to your medical needs.

Complete Independence

We’re not tied to specific hospitals, insurers or conventional ways of working. Our only concern is for our clients and their health and wellbeing.

Exclusively Private

Our private medical services are only available to our members
