Pennant offers private GP appointments for all health matters that you would normally consult your GP with. These appointments are half hourly to allow time to get a full medical history and to allow for examination. Together with the patient, the GP will make a plan of treatment. All prescriptions are done privately, meaning that patients will have to pay for their prescriptions. These costs are not very high but are dependent on the medication being prescribed. Patients can also chose to have all their follow ups with us privately. The private GP will be able to request bloods and further investigations privately as well as manage these results with the patient and advise accordingly. Onward referrals to further specialists if needed are also possible.
The private GP also does private medicals ranging from Heavy Good Medicals to Expedition Medicals and occupational health coming soon. As medicals are so varied please contact us to see if we can undertake that medical here in our clinic.Dr Darren Micheal Cornish
