Private Care GP

The Private GP service is provided by 'WinchesterGP' who are able to advise you with any issue that you would normally take to your NHS GP. Each GP consultation lasts 20 minutes. You are welcome to book a double appointment, if desired. You can use this time together to address any health concerns or issues that you may have. We are happy to advise on more than one issue in a single appointment, if time allows.

For the following more specialist procedures, please call 01962 776010 to book, rather than booking online, so that we can schedule your appointment accordingly: coil fitting, contraceptive implant, sexual health, women's health, joint injection, minor surgery, travel services. 

Winchester GP is entirely subscription free and open to all. The fee structure is simple, you only pay when you need us. Every single appointment booking is marked 'Very Important Patient', whether you visit us once a year or several times, and whether you use us exclusively, or alongside your NHS GP. We aim to earn your loyalty through excellent service and care, rather than charging you for it up front.


What to expect

What will happen in my consultation?

In your consultation, you will have ample time to explain your health concerns. Your doctor will take a full case history and undertake any appropriate examinations. Many issues can be resolved in a single appointment. Otherwise, we will talk you through next steps and any further investigations. If required, we will provide you with a prompt referral to a specialist. The cost of further procedures and investigations will vary according to your chosen provider. We will give you guide pricing during your consultation. Please check with your private health insurance provider for clarification as to what they will cover for you.

Confidential Service

Confidentiality underpins the integrity of the doctor patient relationship. WinchesterGP is governed by the strict standards of confidentiality set by the General Medical Council (GMC). Furthermore, we are entirely independent, and in keeping with GMC regulation, will only share information with other providers when you give us permission, or when legally compelled to do so. You may request a copy of our confidentiality policy by emailing
