Dr Claire Newman
MBChB, MRCGP (2017)
"As a GP I deal with any problem in physical or mental health, assessing, treating and if needed referring on for specialist support."
I have been a General Practitioner in the NHS since 2017. I am currently working as a salaried GP within the NHS as well as providing GP appointments at Spire.
As a generalist, I can assess any medical or psychological problem and work with you to decide the best route of investigation, management and onward referral if needed. This is particularly helpful if problems are vague or there is uncertainty about the seriousness of your symptoms.
I have a particular interest in Lifestyle Medicine (the evidence of how lifestyle can prevent, improve and treat disease) and am currently studying for a diploma in this area.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Claire Newman at Spire include:
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire South Bank Hospital.
