Dorset Private GP service, based in the heart of Bournemouth, offers you the unhurried, thorough, personal care we believe is best for patients.  

All our doctors are highly experienced practising local NHS GPs and we provide all the services you’d expect from a GP consultation, plus some you wouldn’t.

Your health is important and with the NHS sometimes struggling to offer a quality service now is the time to choose a private doctor.

You can see us at a convenient time that suits you – and at an affordable price. And you can see the same doctor each time, just as you once did with a traditional family GP. There’s no need to register in advance and you can continue seeing your existing NHS GP.
