The London General Practice

The London General Practice is a renowned private general medical practice based in the prestigious Harley Street Medical Area of London.

Established in 2005 the practice operates out of a four storey town house on Harley Street, which has been fully refurbished with state of the art consultation rooms, nurse treatment rooms, and access to the very best laboratory and imaging diagnostics facilities in London.  The practice has a total staff of 30, including 11 Doctors and 2 nurses, plus a 24/7 on call team. The Practice’s highly qualified, experienced practitioners offer discreet care to some of the world’s most discerning individuals, families and captains of industry.

The philosophy of The London General Practice is to provide swift same day appointments, with a focus on personal, individualised primary health care. Appointments are a minimum of half an hour ensuring ample time for a full and thorough examination, discussion of health issues, and plenty of time for questions.  

Turnaround times on laboratory and imaging work is quick with laboratory test results being available in a matter of hours, and imaging diagnostics generally on the same day. This means a patient can visit the Practice in the morning for a full examination, have bloods taken, as well as imaging diagnostics and have the results back by the end of the same day.  This enables the Doctors to rapidly provide answers, diagnosis and peace of mind to patients.

Our location on Harley Street allows us to partner with world class laboratories, diagnostic and scanning providers ensuring high quality fast test results.  Our Doctors have strong relationships with the best medical Consultants in every field and work closely with them to ensure our patients get the very best care and medical service.

In addition to general medicine the Practice provides a thorough Health Screening service to individuals and corporate clients.  These are undertaken as bespoke health screening packages designed around the individual, focussing on each person’s individual needs.  This is dependent on their own medical, social and family history.  A typical health screen involves half an hour with a nurse and an hour with a Doctor who conducts a thorough examination.   Once all test results are back, a follow up consultation is held to run through the report, explain any findings and develop an action plan for a healthy lifestyle.

The Practice operates a 24 hour 365 day a year on call service for patients.  Doctors are available for home visits any time day or night.  Our on-call Doctors also look after many of the 5 star hotels in London, providing medical services to their guests.

The on call service is an in house service run using only Doctors known, fully vetted and integrated into the Practice.  All patients are followed up in full the next working day to ensure continuity of care.

The Practice has invested heavily in a robust integrated Clinical Governance programme, which provides the foundation of all its work ensuring the safety and effectiveness of all parts of the business.  The practice is regularly inspected by the CQC, the regulatory body for healthcare in England, and has received a very strong report.  As part of this governance approach the Practice has named leads for each clinical aspect; Medicines Management, Safeguarding, Information Governance, Clinical Governance and Mentoring.

The London Global Practice brand helps patients access a global network of doctors in the US, Middle East and Far East.  This enables the Practice to deliver healthcare services for its patients wherever they may be in the world, utilising other medical practices that extol the same passion, level of quality and service that the London General Practice itself delivers.

The Practice is known for its involvement in the entertainment industry, looking after the health of many artists and performers in TV, Film and Music.  The Practice also works very closely with insurers and underwriters in assessing medical risk for artists and production companies both in the UK and US.

Corporate Health Care forms an integral part of the Practice and this includes all aspects of occupational health, executive health screening as well as wellbeing programs that delivers real benefits to companies and their employees across the United Kingdom. 

Our flexible and tailored approach ensures we can meet the specific requirements of each business.  Prevention, education and communication are key to the services the practice offers its many corporate clients.  Medical screening and consultations are tailored for each individual company and we take into consideration the demands and stress associated with busy working lifestyle.  

The London General Practice has a strong association with the arts and particularly understands the needs of all artists in whatever field they work, whether performing, visual or fashion.  The practice looks after many high profile performers in the artistic world and understands their particular needs, stresses and ambitions.  

The practice continues to provide support to Silver Line, the charity set up by Dame Esther Rantzen to look after elderly people in need of care.  

Dr Paul Ettlinger and his team would welcome you to The London General Practice.
