The SL Directory: Private GPs

Whether you’re looking for a same day appointment, a last-minute prescription or a second opinion, there’s a time and a place for a private GP. Here are nine names that come highly recommended…
By Tor West

Dr Lucy Coyne

Lucy is the founder of Coyne Medical, a cutting-edge private general practice in Fulham that offers a range of services, including same-day blood tests, dermatology, health screenings, referrals to London’s top specialists and more. Specialising in women’s health and wellbeing, Lucy is the name to know for comprehensive hormone support, including HRT and fertility treatment, as well as breast cancer screenings, pregnancy care and postnatal complications. If you live locally, a membership to Coyne Medical could be a good option, as it gives you unlimited consultations and discounts on certain services.


Dr Shashi Prasad

Whether you’re struggling with hot flushes, brain fog and period irregularities, or want to know more about your options when it comes to hormone replacement, Dr Shashi Prasad offers outstanding care. Trained as an advanced menopause specialist at King’s College Hospital, she also has further qualifications in bio-identical hormones and thyroid issues, as well as being a practising functional medicine doctor. Offering a holistic approach to health, she’ll get to the root cause of a problem and formulate a personalised treatment plan to help you feel like your best self. Shashi is based in New Malden – phone consultations are available.  


Dr Ali Joy

With a diploma in sport’s medicine, Ali is the name to know for injuries and musculoskeletal problems. In her 20-year career, she has even served as the doctor for the Royal Ballet School and was on the board of the Rambert dance company, meaning there’s nothing she doesn’t know about building a stronger, more resilient body. She also specialises in cardiology and has close relationships with many leading complementary specialists – she’ll leave no stone unturned when it comes to getting you back on track. Ali is based at the Chelsea Outpatient Clinic. 


Dr Daniel Brook

After training at Cambridge and Imperial College London, Daniel took the reins from his father, Dr John Brook, to head up the Brook Surgery, a brand-new facility near Golders Green. The family-run practice has become known in the local community for offering unparalleled care covering every aspect of general practice – from health screenings to vaccinations and services like physiotherapy and psychiatry. Daniel has a specialist interest in health screenings and cardiovascular disease, and treats patients of all ages, from newborn to the elderly. Out-of-hours appointments and home visits are also available.


Dr Martin Saweirs

Based on Harley Street, Martin offers a comprehensive range of medical care for children and adults alike. This includes managing and treating acute and chronic illnesses – such as chest infections, dermatology concerns, persistent UTIs, headaches and abdominal pain – as well as general health check-ups, health and travel advice, vaccinations, private prescriptions and onward referrals. His beautifully furnished clinic offers a relaxing environment for patients, but if you can’t get there, house calls around inner London can be arranged. 


Dr Ismat Nasiruddin

Prior to establishing her own clinic, Thrive Medical, a stone’s throw from Sloane Square, Dr Ismat Nasiruddin worked for over 20 years as an NHS GP in some of London’s busiest hospital departments. Passionate about offering full-spectrum health support and building long-term relationships with patients and families, her wealth of experience makes her a must-see, especially when it comes to women’s health – think PCOS, PMS and complex menopausal concerns. She’ll also offer invaluable support if you’re dealing with endometriosis or fertility challenges, collaborating closely with London’s top consultants. 


Dr Ebba Nielsen

Offering a level of flexibility and speed of service not usually possible with conventional GP services, Dr Ebba Nielsen offers care for all ages. Taking a holistic approach to healthcare, she can refer you to some of the capital’s leading experts, giving you access to high-quality specialist care and tailor-made referrals. Ebba is passionate about mental health, too, and, with a diploma from the Royal College of Gynaecologists, has women’s health covered, too. Find her in Chelsea – telephone consultations and home visits can also be booked.


Dr Usha Sharma

Dr Usha Sharma has over 30 years’ experience as a GP, providing accessible, personalised healthcare at her practice in Windsor’s Berkshire Grove Hospital. Through her practice, she’s treated generations of the same families, offering care for children and adults alike, including private prescriptions, blood tests, sickness certificates and vaccinations. She also treats many expat families. With a special interest in women’s health, she can also help with sexual health tests, contraception and perimenopause testing, as well as breast screenings and cervical smear tests. 


Dr Catrin Bevan

As a leading GP with over 20 years’ experience, Dr Catrin Bevan provides flexible, personalised care, including medical consultations, house calls and emergency visits, and health screenings. She has a particular interest and expertise in women’s health, geriatric and palliative care, as well as bereavement counselling. Catrin also heads up the women’s health programme at The London General Practice where she is based, a state-of-the-art facility that offers 24-hour services. She was recently listed in the prestigious Spears 500, too – a guide to the best private client advisers.
