New Victoria Hospital is delighted to start its new private GP Service on Monday, 01 March 2021.

Virtual appointments will also be available, and patients will be able to book the services they require, online.
The new private GP Service offers face-to-face and virtual appointments
The new private GP Service is run by New Victoria Hospital, six days a week, Monday to Saturday, to provide young and adult patients with local primary care.
During this pandemic, healthcare and routine check-ups are being postponed by many, and some people do not feel comfortable with virtual consultations.
By launching our GP service, we will give the opportunity to more patients to look after their health and invite them not to delay check-ups.
Prevention and early diagnosis are always key to excellent health and better treatment outcomes.
“The new GP Service will contribute to improving healthcare access locally.”- comments New Victoria Hospital’s CEO, David Marshall - “Patients will also benefit from dedicated consultation time with their GP and quick referrals to our specialist Consultants, Imaging and Physiotherapy services.”
Patients who would like to book a face-to-face consultation are invited to read our recent Covid-19 guidelines.
