We understand the value of being able to access quality women’s health advice from a female GP. Our Private GP appointments are available on an affordable basis, with no need for insurance.
With the option of 10 and 30 minute appointments, you will have the opportunity to discuss all of your health concerns in detail, ask questions and be examined in a respected and unhurried manner.
We offer a complete service and are able to offer further blood tests and investigations, usually on the same day. If you need to be referred to a specialist this will be arranged straight away.
Our female GPs are also able to provide general health checks for ladies who may not have a specific health concern but are wanting to screen for any underlying symptoms.
You are not obliged to share your private records with your NHS GP, but following your consultation and any further investigations, you will be given the option for your GP to be notified.
You can refer yourself to our Women’s Health Service at any time, you do not need an appointment with your Own NHS GP before visiting Summerfield Healthcare.
Our team of experienced female GPs are dedicated to delivering high quality healthcare for women, but in a relaxed private setting without the rush, allowing you to feel comfortable when you visit our clinics.
You can book your appointment with our female GP and discuss your concerns confidentially on the day.
Our GPs can give you the time to discuss your concerns in detail and are able to provide further investigations such as blood tests, diagnostic assessments or referrals to a specialist.
We have listed some of our most popular services for women below, and additional information is available further down this page in our drop downs:
Which contraception is best for you? We offer advice and guidance on the many different options available. For any implant or coil fittings a contraceptive consultation is required in the first instance. A contraceptive consultation is not required if you are solely booking an implant or coil removal.
The combined oral contraceptive pill is usually just referred to as ‘the pill’. The oral contraceptive pill contains artificial versions of female hormones oestrogen and progesterone, which women produce naturally in their ovaries. When taken correctly, the pill is over 99% effective at preventing pregnancy. As there are a range of contraceptive pills available, our female GPs can give you reassurance and guidance on the best pill for you.
Menopause is a natural biological process. But the physical symptoms, such as hot flushes, and emotional symptoms of menopause may disrupt your sleep, lower your energy or affect mental health. 20% of women suffer with severe or prolonged symptoms of menopause and there are a range of ways to manage them.
Our team of experienced GP’s will give you the time to discuss your symptoms and provide you with a comprehensive assessment of your presentation to identify the cause as they may not always be related to the menopause and then effectively manage your symptoms.
At your women’s health appointment we can discuss with you the variety of effective treatments available, from lifestyle adjustments to hormone replacement therapy. You can enquire about a Menopause Consultation here: www.summerfieldhealthcare.co.uk/private-medical-services/menopause-clinic/

Women who have been through the menopause are at an increased risk of developing osteoporosis (weak bones) as a result of the lower level of oestrogen in the body.
Our doctors would be able to advise you of ways in which you can reduce the risks and manage symptoms of osteoporosis.
The wait for NHS cervical screening tests is now up to 12 weeks. Summerfield Healthcare provide your cervical screening or ‘smear test’ results within 3 weeks of appointment.
We are also able to provide this service for patients from the age of 18, rather than waiting until the age of 25 for an NHS appointment.
Breast cancer cannot be prevented, however, receiving regular examinations are an important part of early detection.
At your breast examination, we can check for different types of abnormalities and warning signs such as lumps and pains. You can discuss any worries you have with a female GP who is there to listen and understand your concerns.
Our private medical centres are conveniently located and meet the needs of families in a wide surrounding area.
