There may be doubts over whether GPs will be able to deliver government plans for a seven-day health service, but at YourGP in Edinburgh, there’s no such concern.
The government’s plans have been in the news again recently, after the health secretary, Jeremy Hunt, pledged to recruit an extra 10,000 doctors and nurses in return for a seven-day service.
Hunt said he wanted to create flexibility for working patients and allow vulnerable people to have longer appointments – two things we are fully committed to providing at YourGP.
Many surgeries in Scotland and across the UK are only open from 8.30am to 6pm on weekdays, forcing patients to take time off work to see a doctor. And although some workplaces allow time off work to deal with an emergency, we know it can be difficult to arrange time off work for GP appointments.
That’s why at YourGP, we offer longer opening hours, seven days a week – meaning working patients don’t need to worry about rearranging their busy schedule or taking time off work.
Not only that, we offer longer consultation times of 15 minutes, 30 minutes and one hour, meaning we always have plenty of time to help resolve your worries, concerns and illnesses.
One of the reasons the government wants to deliver a seven-day GP service is because according to official figures, millions of patients across the UK have to wait a week or more for a doctor’s appointment.
Last year, it was revealed that a quarter of patients in Scotland face waits of more than a week to see a GP – despite a Scottish Government vow to get everyone seen in 72 hours.
But unlike other health practices, we are part of the Sameday Doctor™ network, so we offer short notice appointments same day or within 24 hours – ensuring you’ll be seen quickly and with minimum fuss.
Our experienced GPs provide a reassuring and friendly ear and are always focused on getting you back on the road to health as soon as possible.
And even if you can’t get to our private health practice in Edinburgh, we’ll be happy to visit you either in your home or hotel.
Once we get your call, one of our specialist GPs or consultants will get to you as quickly as they can. Even if you’re not registered with our practice, you can be confident that you’ll get the highest level of care and rapid test results.
With fast results, short notice appointments and late night opening hours seven days a week, YourGP is at your service, whenever, wherever you need it.
I was warmly greeted by staff with genuine smiles. The staff made me feel very comfortable and engaged me in conversation about several topics which made waiting pass very pleasantly. I noticed they were proactive in making each person who arrived feel welcome, including the courier.
