The private GP service based at Nuffield Hospital offers a convenient service that enables you and your family to receive the help and advice you need at a time to suit you.

GP appointments:

  • Monday - Friday: 09:00 - 17:00
  • Saturday: 08:30 - 12:30
  • Same-day appointments (sometimes available)
  • Available to all ages - those under 18 should be accompanied by a parent/guardian
  • No need to be registered with an NHS GP.

A professional, thorough and convenient service. No rush. No-fuss. Your time. Your health.

NHS GPs work incredibly hard to provide a first-class service but struggle against rising demand. We strive to work alongside the NHS to provide individuals, families, working people and employers with an alternative choice of health care provider.

We are the Cambridge Private Doctors, based at the Nuffield Health Cambridge Hospital.

Our doctors are highly experienced GPs, able to consult on a broad range of general medical issues, with specialist interests including mental health, cardiology and women's health.

We are approachable and understanding doctors, providing the very best medical support in a relaxed and unhurried environment — offering traditional, patient-focused consultations.

We take your concerns and needs seriously and offer a sympathetic and understanding point of view. We aim to give you peace of mind when you need it most.
