Appointment times to suit you
It’s easy to book an appointment with Nuffield Health Virtual GP. Just login through your device, find a time that works for you and book your appointment instantly. We’re open 8am-10pm, 365 days a year (UK time).

The modern family doctor
Choose your doctor by the areas they specialise in, the languages they speak, their name if you’ve seen them before or by gender if you’d like to speak to a male or female doctor. All our GPs are UK registered with the General Medical Council (GMC) and Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) qualified and specially trained in virtual consultation skills.

Getting your medication
You can have your prescription medicine delivered to your door (4 hours within London, next day rest of UK) or get it sent to your nearest local UK pharmacy for you to pick up at a time that suits you.

You can also set up your NHS repeat prescriptions through your Virtual GP, so you never need to worry about running out or forgetting to order again.

Need medication abroad? No problem, our Global Prescription Management Service supports prescription fulfilment no matter where in the world you are. Our team will help to advise on the best course of action.

Instant referrals

Following a thorough consultation, if appropriate, your GP will write you an instant referral to a private specialist and email you to let you know it has been stored securely on your patient record. You can then download this to share with your specialist or insurer. You can also be referred to an in-person Nuffield Health GP for further diagnostics (additional charges may apply, depending on your membership).

24/7 secure access to your patient record

You can access your patient record at any time, update it as necessary and use it to download notes and referrals for future consultations.

Apple Health
Connect to Apple Health and use your Watch to take your heart rate in a consultation and share the reading with the doctor.

"The advice from the GP was excellent and thorough and the whole service is refreshingly immediate. I have already recommended it to friends and family and will continue to do so." 

Charlie from Fulham

"I’m delighted my days of stuffy waiting rooms are over! I was able to make an appointment really quickly and easily with a doctor who really took the time to answer my questions fully and gave really informed and relevant advice."

Lucy from Surrey

"Doctor Care Anywhere has changed the way I view GP medical care from both a personal and professional perspective. Their online service is incredibly easy to use yet still maintains the highest level of personal care and privacy."

Lara from Warwickshire

“There are times when it can be difficult to get to the doctor, especially for parents juggling home, work and small children. Having access to Doctor Care Anywhere, a service that allows you to consult with a doctor online or over the phone seven days a week is both handy and helpful, at the times when you need it most."

Great Service

This service is incredible. It is very difficult for me to get an appointment with my GP, especially now and I work full time. I made my appointment easily and the doctor called right on time, I was prescribed antibiotics and the prescription was delivered the following day… a really easy process to follow. Thoroughly recommend.

Not great on the iPad

Works fine on the phone but less good on an iPad in that it only works in portrait not landscape which contrary to most iPad stands

Dr don’t show up

Rubbish! Stayed up until 2:20am for an appointment and the Dr didn’t show. Waited for 20mins, then received a message stating the appointment was completed and I was the one that didn’t attend. Next available appointment is 3 days away (unless I want to sit up until 4am). Waste of time.
