At Essex Private Doctors we’ve been providing fast and convenient private GP services, from our well-established Shenfield surgery, since 2005.

Described by our patients as, “excellent medical care for the whole family”, our service includes GP appointments and prescriptions, blood tests and minor surgery, health screening, contraception, vaccinations and aesthetics.

Consultations are relaxed, strictly confidential and discreet.  You will never feel rushed.  At ease to properly discuss your health concerns or illness with our highly experienced doctors.

Further tests and referrals:

Any additional investigations, such as ECGs and blood tests will be performed by your doctor during the GP appointment.  And, just as you’d expect, the appointment will also include the writing of a prescription or recommendation of further tests or treatment.

Your doctor will arrange onward specialist referrals to specialist consultants at local private hospitals.  Ensuring radiological investigations such as X-ray, Ultrasound, CT and MRI imaging are arranged with fast results.

Out of Hours and Home Visits

We’re open 6 days a week and offer a convenient next-day appointment service.  However, we’ll always try to accommodate urgent requests on the same day, and appointments outside regular surgery hours can be made by prior arrangement.
