General Practice

We have a commitment to care

At the Courtfield Private Practice we have been caring for patients for over 25 years. As well as serving the local population, patients come from all over the world to see us. Our experienced and caring team are dedicated to providing medical care to all age groups and every member of the family.

We provide the best and most progressive private medical treatment available, tailored to your family’s needs and schedule. We understand the demands that modern families face, so we offer a wide variety of services to support you:

Longer Appointment Times
No one wants to feel rushed through an appointment. We aim to provide our patients with as much time with their doctors as they need. You can discuss your worries and concerns in a relaxed and unhurried environment, knowing that you’ve been allocated plenty of time.

Our aim is to give excellent medical care to all age ranges, from newborn babies to the frail elderly. From simplifying bookings with our flexible appointment portal, to keeping your little ones up-to-date with their routine immunisations, we’re here to support you and your family.


We believe patients deserve better than a 9-5 service and understand that they have busy working lives. We therefore offer routine Saturday morning appointments, longer evenings and earlier morning starts. For those unable to attend the Practice, we offer telephone consultations, email advice and home visiting.  Even outside of normal surgery hours, one of our colleagues from Concierge Doctor will always be available for telephone advice or home visits.

We believe in the importance of preventative medicine. All patients are offered and encouraged to have a comprehensive health screen with us each year. Male and female health screens are offered in conjunction with counselling to help you manage your future healthcare. Furthermore, all patients on long term medication are invited to annually review their medication plan.
As part of our integrated approach to your overall healthcare, we work in close co-operation with a number of complementary therapists, some of whom are based at this practice.

If you have any concerns or worries at all about our services, we’re here to listen. If there’s anything you would like to discuss, please contact Estefania Fernandez, the Practice Manager.
