Essex Private Doctors

Caring, professional, expert GP Service


Welcome to Essex Private Doctors – Offering you a full General Practice service

Our purpose built premises are located in Huton Road, Shenfield. The Registered Manager and Provider is Dr Kannan Athreya who works with Dr Jonathan Richardson, co-founder the Practice in 2004. Essex Private Doctors is registered with the Care Quality Commission and is regularly inspected.

Dr Athreya and Dr Richardson are our Practitioners.

We offer convenient same-day appointments in a relaxed and confidential setting. Our aim is to offer you the full range of GP services including on-site laboratory tests and cardiac investigations.

The clinic is equipped with the latest medical technology and has a fully equipped minor surgery suite. This, combined with the vast experience of the doctors at the clinic enables us to provide a professional, caring, patient centred service.



The waiting list has been up and running now for around 4 weeks and we are happy to continue to accept more patients intending on securing the vaccinations. 

Whilst we have no additional news form GlaxoSmithKline regarding timing of earliest supply of vaccine, currently still scheduled for June 2016, the clinic has been contacted by an independent supplier offering BEXSERO to us earlier via a parallel import source abroad and at a more expensive cost.

Essex Private Doctors have chosen NOT to take up this offer.

  1. We deal directly with GSK to ensure the purity and validity of the vaccine and we cannot be sure that the stringent conditions required for safe and effective vaccine delivery to us from other sources have been observed.
  2. The vaccine from this source has been offered to us at a considerably higher price than from the manufacturer, and thus we do not feel that it is fair to our patients to take financial advantage of the current anxiety over the global shortage of the BEXSERO vaccine.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        It has always been our position to inform our patients that while BEXSERO vaccination is beneficial, especially for the under-fives, there is no need to become unduly concerned or anxious over the delay for this vaccination. Meningitis B is of course a serious condition, but it is still rare and incidence of the disease is NOT on the rise.

I will be posting FAQ’s on the Facebook page (EssexPrivate Doctors) in the next day- please like our page to keep updated.

If you are not on the waiting list as yet, please *EMAIL*  the clinic using giving your contact details and the dates of birth of the children that you would like to be vaccinated. I will acknowledge every email that I have received within 72 hours , and further send an additional email later confirming that you are on the waiting list.

As soon as we have a firm confirmation about our allocation for Bexsero with and expected date of delivery, we will call in strict order and invite you to pay the full price for the vaccination course (including booster, if appropriate) and order and secure the vaccines for you. We will then set some dates over the summer for primary and secondary vaccinations.

Ages 12- 23 months: TWO injections, the interval being at least two months, with a BOOSTER between 12-23 MONTHS after second injection.

Ages 2-10 years: TWO injections, the interval being at least TWO MONTHS

11 years to adult: TWO injections, the interval being at least ONE MONTH

The cost for each vaccine is £140

All children that have already started their vaccination course with Essex Private Doctors will be able to complete their individual schedule as organised at the time of their initial doses.
