Good health is a matter of mind as well as body and we really believe in a holistic approach. At GP-Plus, we stop and listen to you. We can show you how you might help yourself. Considering all orthodox and complementary options, where appropriate, so empowering and enabling you to make choices, which precisely reflect your individual needs and beliefs. Our team includes GPs with special interests (homeopathy, acupuncture, obesity and pain management); Allied Healthcare Professionals who provide counselling, clinical psychology, hypnotherapy, osteopathy and reflexology/aromatherapy (to name a few) and Consultants whose skills dovetail with these and other clinical problems. What’s more, many commonly prescribed items are actually less expensive on private prescription. Some drugs can, however, be very expensive and would form part of any discussion about treatment. There are also many safe homeopathic remedies, which can be used to complement other traditional approaches. GP-Plus also offers a unique opportunity to access the use of newer preventative drug therapies, which might be indicated but otherwise rationed or unavailable through the NHS. Last but not least, all fees are communicated in clear terms, free from unnecessary medical jargon. There are no hidden costs or membership fees. GP-Plus is principally a pay-as-you-go service but individual and company accounts can be set-up to reflect the nature of use.
