A new walk-in GP centre has been opened by HCA’s London Bridge Hospital.
It offers immediate access to GP-led medical care for professionals working in The City, as well as commuters and tourists who need a quick appointment.
Fifteen-minute face-to-face GP appointments for anyone aged 18+ cost £80.
Located opposite London Bridge station at 29 Tooley Street, the facility offers patients same-day access to GPs, without the need to book an appointment.
HCA said patients could walk in or call ahead and a private clinician would be available to see them on the same day ‘with no waits or delays’.
The centre, on the London Bridge Hospital campus, gives access to facilities including imaging, outpatients and diagnostics, as well as a broad population of specialist consultants if needed. It can also support private referrals into London Bridge Hospital through HCA UK’s 24/7 Acute Admissions Service.
HCA Healthcare UK reports a significant increase in demand for primary care services since 2019, most notably across:
Health screenings (25%);
Occupational health appointments (28%);
Specialist referrals (62%).
London Bridge Hospital boss Janene Madden said: ‘Our patients can see a private GP on the same day or at a time that suits, giving them greater control of when they can access care, as well as peace of mind.
‘Being based in London Bridge means the centre is conveniently located for busy, professionals working around The City; as well as tourists, commuters and members of the public passing through London Bridge Station who don’t have a regular GP or need an appointment quickly.’
The walk-in GP centre at London Bridge Hospital is open between 8am-5pm, Monday to Friday.
