You can choose to see our doctor who can facilitate private diagnostic tests and X-rays if appropriate, often within the same visit. Our private GP can also refer you on for private physiotherapy treatment, to a consultant for a private appointment, or to one of our specialist clinics. Minimal waiting time for results provides the opportunity for a speedy diagnosis and peace of mind and for appointments at the hospital, with an on-site pharmacy; we can dispense any prescriptions required.

Private GP appointments are available on Friday afternoons 12.30pm – 7pm.

Private GP consultation fees at Spire Washington Hospital are £110 for a 30 minute appointment.

Fees are payable on the day of appointment. The cost of any additional tests and scans are not included in the consultation fee.

There is a cancellation fee of £30.00 if you cancel your consultation less than 48 hours before appointment.

Information for patients with private health insurance

Will my private health insurance cover the cost of my consultation? This will depend on the terms of your policy. Contact your insurance provider for further details. However, if the cost of the consultation itself is not covered, it is our experience that the cost of any referrals or investigations is likely to be met.

If I need a blood test, X-ray or scan, would you be able to refer me at the time of my consultation? Yes. Blood tests, further investigations, prescriptions, referrals, certificates and letters can usually be arranged at the time of consultation.* Consultant advice can often be sought promptly as many specialists are present in the hospital during clinic times.
