The Holly has strict infection control and prevention protocols in place to protect healthcare workers, patients and visitors and to minimise the risk of any infection, including Covid-19 (coronavirus). We are following the latest government advice and keeping all our teams updated with information on how to stay safe and protect themselves and patients. Our priority is to protect our patients, colleagues and local communities.
If you’re too busy to see your GP during office hours, want more time to discuss your concerns or simply want to choose an appointment at a time that suits you, we can help.
All patients are welcome, whether they are registered with us or not. All it takes is a simple phone call or email to book your appointment.
Appointments can be made for any health concern you have and are scheduled to last 20 or 30 minutes. This allows the doctor to listen to you and understand your symptoms, take a detailed medical and family history and undertake a physical examination if required.

Follow on care
Our Private GP’s are supported by our team of 350 consultant doctors who are leading specialists in a range of medical disciplines. So if you need any further health checks or a referral, you will have quick access to a variety of consultants and specialists within the hospital for follow-on care.
Patients are able to access our onsite Diagnostic Centre, Out-patients Department, Phlebotomy (blood tests) and Pharmacy.
So if you require any further imaging or diagnostic tests we can take care of everything from blood tests and urine analysis, through to X-rays, CT, MRI and ultrasound scans, cardiac testing (ECG) and cancer screening (colon, cervical, breast, prostate and ovarian).
Most patients are able to have any necessary imaging and diagnostic tests on the same day, usually following on from their consultation. We work with pathology services and consultant radiologists to ensure fast-track results and reporting.
And if you require any medication our on-site Pharmacy can help.
