What are the benefits of seeing a private GP instead of going to the NHS?

There are a number of different benefits that are associated with seeing a private GP rather than booking an appointment with an NHS doctor. This includes the following:

  • You can see a GP quickly – One of the main reasons why patients prefer private GP services at clinics like Omniya is because they are able to see a GP quickly. There is a shorter waiting time and you are going to be able to get an appointment at a time that is convenient for you. We may even have same-day appointments available, so please do not hesitate to give us a call to find out about our availability. You will also find that you spend much less time in the waiting room when you opt for private GP services.
  • Environment – A lot of people prefer a private clinic because the environment is usually more comfortable and plusher. You can be sure of a relaxing environment when you visit us at Omniya. We do everything to make sure that you are at ease, providing a discreet and safe place for your medical concerns.
  • Efficiency – Private GPs tend to have access to the very best consultants, specialists, and diagnostics. Referrals are a lot quicker as well. Plus, you will typically find that the test results are returned at a much quicker speed as well, with blood tests sometimes returning on the same day.
  • Personalised bespoke treatment – When you see a private GP rather than an NHS GP, you are going to have a greater choice of treatments available to you. You may also benefit from a choice of doctors, enabling you to choose who you would prefer to see. This could be for personal reasons or it could be because you want to see the same doctor all of the time to enhance the quality of care and personal experience. This is not typically the case with NHS doctors. You will typically have to see whoever is available. Moreover, there is a more limited selection of treatments that is going to be offered to you.
  • Flexibility – With private general practices, there is usually going to be much more flexibility. We can offer extended appointment times to ensure that our patients experience ease of access. This means you are going to be able to fit your GP appointment into your daily life, rather than needing to book a day off work or organise childcare.
  • Longer consultations – Last but not least, another benefit associated with private GP services is that there is going to be more time for your consultation. You can bring a number of different problems, symptoms, or concerns to your GP, rather than only being able to discuss one issue, as is often the case when seeing an NHS GP. As NHS doctors are often overworked and inundated with appointments, it is very difficult for them to give you the full amount of time and attention that you require. However, when you see a GP, your appointments can last around 30 minutes or even as long as an hour. This means that there is more than enough time for you to be clinically examined and to discuss any of the concerns that you may have. You can also be investigated thoroughly and referred to a specialist if needed. This means that your condition is going to be treated much more appropriately, effectively, and quickly. Not only this but you can have peace of mind knowing that you will be able to ask as many questions as needed.

Signs that you should see a GP

Some people will go to see a GP whenever they notice that something is not quite right. There are then those that will avoid the doctor’s office at all costs. No matter what category you fall into, here are some of the signs that you may wish to seek advice with our private GP services.

  • You have developed unexpected symptoms after starting a new medication or after a medical procedure – anytime that you start a new medication, get an immunisation, or undergo a surgery or medical procedure, it is important to speak to your doctor in advance about any of the known symptoms. You should then monitor your symptoms to ensure that nothing out of the ordinary occurs. If it does, you need to book an appointment with your GP as soon as possible.
  • You think that you might have a concussion – If you have suffered a blow to your head or you have fallen on your head, you need to make sure you keep an eye out for symptoms of concussion. These can include a change in sleep pattern, irritability, headaches, and troubles concentrating. If you notice that any of these symptoms have developed, we would recommend booking a private GP appointment.
  • You experience changes in mood or confusion – Sudden confusion and changes in mood can happen with mental health problems, as well as physical conditions, including drug interaction or infection. Watch out for feelings of depression or anxiety, as well as irregular sleeping patterns, and trouble focusing or thinking.
  • You are experiencing bright flashes that are interrupting your vision – Do you suffer from migraines? If so, you may experience bright spots or flashes in your vision. Nevertheless, outside of migraines, this sort of symptom could be an indication that you have retinal detachment. This is a severe condition that needs to be seen to as soon as possible otherwise it could result in permanent loss of vision.
  • Your urination or bowel movement has changed – It is important to note that urination and bowel movement can differ from person to person. Therefore, the most vital thing that you should be looking for here is a sudden change in your own patterns, whether that is excessive urination, constipation, diarrhoea, black stools, or bloody stools.
  • You are short of breath – Extreme temperatures, obesity, strenuous exercise, and high altitude are all typical causes of shortness in breath. If none of these reasons are resulting in breathlessness, it is worth booking an appointment with your doctor to discover if you have bronchitis, asthma, or some other type of condition. This is especially the case if the symptoms come on strong and sudden.You have severe pelvic, abdominal or chest pain – Sustained pain in the chest, abdomen, or pelves can indicate that you have an underlying issue that demands attention from your doctor. This is especially the case if the pain is intense and feels abnormal. Some examples include a kidney infection when the pain is in the pelvis or this could be appendicitis. If you have pain in the abdomen and it is accompanied by vomiting and nausea, this could be gallstones. If the pain is the chest, the issue could be related to heart problems.
  • You have lost weight suddenly and you can’t figure out why – There are a number of different reasons why you may have an unexplained drop in weight. This includes liver disease, depression, diabetes, and an overactive thyroid, as well as a number of other things. As a general rule of thumb, if you are not obese and you have lost over ten per cent of your body weight in the past six months, it is a good idea to get in touch and book an appointment.
  • Your cold becomes unusually bad – It is usually difficult to know when you should go and see a doctor for a cold. There are a few things that you should watch out of. If you have shortness of breath, chest pain, or difficulty swallowing, this may indicate that you have a more serious condition. If you have flu-like symptoms, such as muscle aches or a fever, you may have the flu. It is wise to see a doctor in this case so that you can get a prescription. Also, if you have a severe cough that lingers for two weeks or more, it could indicate that you have whooping cough. If untreated, sustained congestion can lead to a sinus infection.
  • You have a persistent, high fever – Last but not least, if you have a high fever that doesn’t seem to be going away, you should book an appointment. A fever is one way that your body fights infection naturally. Nevertheless, if you have a fever that lasts for over three days and is more than 103˚ Fahrenheit, you should see a doctor.
