About us » Newcastle Health - Private GP Clinic

A COMPLETE HEALTHCARE SERVICE

In addition to general practice consultations, we offer an array of other healthcare services, some of which include health checks, non surgical aesthetic procedures, minor surgery, occupational health services and a travel clinic.

EASE OF ACCESS

Open 7 days per week, we offer morning, afternoon and evening appointments with on the day appointments usually available. We also offer telephone appointments and home visits.

A PATIENT CENTRED APPROACH

We recognise that every patient is individual and as such each person has to have their consultation and treatment tailored to them. We allow you to decide how long you want your consultation to be. Appointments can range from 20 minutes to a full hour. Following a discussion and physical exam with your doctor, we will fully explain what treatment options are available and allow you to make the final decision.

A POSITIVE, PROACTIVE APPROACH TO WELLBEING

Much of the work that GP’s do involves treating patients once they already have a disease that requires medical management. We like to think we are proactive and put a lot of emphasis on preventative medicine, advising our patients on nutrition and lifestyle and how that can prevent and treat disease.

DIRECT ACCESS TO SECONDARY CARE

Where additional expertise is required, we can refer our patients to some of the leading medical specialists working in the region.
