"Ideally you'd never have to see a doctor, but when you do, our job is to get you feeling better as quickly, safely and painlessly as possible - so that you can get on with what matters to you."
In the current environment, we recommend a telephone consultation where possible. Our doctors can deal with the vast majority of issues this way. If you require a prescription it will be sent electronically to your local pharmacy. Should your doctor advise that you need to be seen in clinic then that can usually be arranged the same day at a discounted rate of £29.
For the safety of patients and doctors our clinics are regularly deep cleaned and all staff are equipped with PPE. To avoid patient contact in the waiting area we only have a single doctor at each clinic.
We also provide laboratory PCR Covid tests, Day 2 & 8 tests and Test to Release from multiple sites across London. All samples are taken by a healthcare professional. Choose from 3 hour, same day or next day PCR results. Instant antigen (£59) and antibody tests (£59) are also available. All Covid tests include a doctor's travel certificate. You doctor will contact you with your results and any recommended next steps as soon as they are available. Find out more about COVID testing with DocTap.
DocTap provides convenient, affordable and above all excellent private GP services from our 11 London clinics. Ideal if you are living, visiting or working in London and need to find a doctor nearby. Our GP appointments can be conducted in person, face to face or over the phone.
Should you require a blood test or sexual health screen, we offer the fastest and best value doctor led blood tests in London. Simply book a normal consulation and your doctor will discuss your options with you and carry out any appropriate tests.
We only employ highly experienced UK accredited general practitioners who have a passion for helping their patients, whatever their medical needs. When booking your GP appointment online you are welcome to request either a male or female doctor if you prefer. Repeat patients can also choose to see the same doctor again where available.
Why should a private doctor cost a fortune? Most of our patients have never used private healthcare before in their lives. DocTap have 15 minute private GP appointments from just £34. There are no additional charges for writing prescriptions, sick notes or referral letters during the appointment. After your doctor's appointment you are sent detailed consultation notes which you may share with your NHS GP if you choose.
As a private GP practice you do not need to be registered with an NHS GP to use our doctors surgery. New patients are most welcome. If you are a tourist or foreign visitor you can book an appointment with a doctor now. No extra paperwork or registration is required. DocTap is regulated by the Care Quality Commission.
"As a small business owner time is my most precious commodity, so I don't want to spend it queuing in my local GP surgery or endlessly phoning to get an appointment at a time which doesn't suit.
With DocTap I am just one-click away from the appointment I need at the location I need it, all for a very reasonable service charge. DocTap saves me time and money."Andrew Knowles
"I had a great experience with DocTap, I cannot fault them. Everything from booking the appointment to seeing my doctor on the day was smooth and efficient. It is super easy to choose a location and time online and pay for your appointment and you get text and email reminders when the appointment is coming up."
When arriving, you check in through an ipad and are sent a text message with instructions as to where to go as well as instructions on the ipad screen in front of you. My doctor was out and waiting for me by the time I arrived down the corridor. The appointment was great, the lady I saw was extremely professional and made me feel at ease. After the appointment was done, I received a full report on my online account. A great experience all in all!Katie Grainger
"I needed to see a doctor and my surgery was booked up for the next week. Using the DocTap app let me see a qualified physician the next day at an affordable price. It's an easy to use platform that eliminates many of the bottlenecks of trying to access a GP through the NHS.
The doctor was compassionate and attentive and I left the appointment having all my questions and concerns answered. For routine care DocTap will be my first choice in the future. Thanks for providing this great service at a fair price."John
Dr Ullah was friendly, frank, honest and thorough. He listened, understood and took an appropriate course of action. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone.Thursday, June 10, 2021
Absolutely spot on. Availability great, kind caring Doctor, prompt feedback with written notes, rapid test results. Couldn’t recommend more:-)Wednesday, June 9, 2021
I went for a general health check and blood test. Dr Edwards was very polite and listened to my concerns and suggested the blood test I've had. I have needle phobia but Dr Edwards was very patient and attentive so the whole procedure was less painful than I expected.Saturday, June 5, 2021
Reassuring having this incredible good service easily accessible!Thursday, June 3, 2021
This is the second time I have used DocTap and it was as successful as the first. You fill an essential and possibly little know gap in the functioning of social medecine. Someone who has survived illnesses--both minor anad major--and survived to the age of 74 probably knows when he is in need of antibiotic. When it is needed, the sooner it is adminsitered the better and it is in these cases that the NHS system fails. For those of us able to pay (who really can't afford £49 pounds to avoid the discomfort of the early stages of an untreated infection), DocTap saves the day! Thank you for being thereWednesday, June 2, 2021

My doctor was very comprehensive and reassuring.Wednesday, April 28, 2021
Quite a confusing layout and none of the other staff in the building seem to know there is a doctor on site - could do with some signs or explanations for people who haven’t been there before - it’s not obvious where to go or what to doWednesday, April 28, 2021
The Doctor was the Best Doctor my child ever hadWednesday, April 28, 2021
I would most definitely highly recommend DocTap to others. For me personally, I received immediate professional advice and help when I needed it and I will return to use DocTap in the future. Thank you Dr Chan for your understanding of my situation and for the advice you gave to me. I feel blessed to have been helped in such a fast and compassionate way.Friday, April 23, 2021

Our General Practitioners can assist in a wide range of medical issues. In the vast majority of cases our doctors can recommend the appropriate treatment directly. And where they can't they can refer you to the appropriate specialist.
Your general practitioner will listen as you describe the problem, perform an examination where required, make their diagnosis, provide medical advice and then draw up a plan of action.
DocTap does not charge for writing prescriptions. All our doctors surgeries are located next to a pharmacy. You do not pay the NHS charge but instead pay the cost of the particular drug.
All our private doctors are experienced members of the Royal College of General Practitioners. We constantly monitor patient feedback and consultation notes to ensure the highest standards of care.

Prices start at £34 for a 15 minute consultation. There is no charge for writing prescriptions or sick notes. Our test and scanning prices are amongst the lowest available.
DocTap was born out of the frustration I experienced when trying to see a GP for my chronic back pain from my time in the Armed Forces. Battling with GP receptionists was as tough as anything I’d faced in the army!
I was prepared to pay for the convenience of a private doctors but couldn't see myself checking in to an exclusive Harley Street private GP practice.
Unable to find what I was after, I decided to build it. 18 months later, and with much help from Mark (our GP clinical director) and Dan (our tech hero) DocTap opened its first private doctor's surgery in East London.
Our aspiration is to offer the most convenient, affordable and highest standard of GP care; to be the best private GP in London. I very much hope we’ll be able to assist you with your healthcare needs.
As a self-employed IT Contractor I often take client assignments several hundred miles away from home, taking time off to visit my local doctor would inevitably necessitate taking a day off work with the resulting loss of a day’s pay and the inconvenience of a 300-mile round trip should the appointment be mid-week.
Being a chronic asthmatic I know when a bad cold is about to progress to something more serious and time is if the essence in such circumstances to be prescribed medication, so it was important I got to a doctor quickly when in April 2017 I was experiencing laboured breathing with a chesty cough.
At a critical point in the project I was leading I couldn’t afford the time off to visit my local doctor so I searched the internet in the hope of being able to locate a local doctor to register with and perhaps see the next day or the day after.
Google quickly presented the ‘DocTap’ web site, the terms seemed too reasonable to resist. A participating doctor was within a mile of the office and appointment times were available in 30-mins intervals from an hour of my current logged in time.
I made a lunch time appointment that day, was seen promptly by a doctor who completed a thorough examination and prescribed medication which I picked up from an adjacent chemist. The medication promptly arrested the development of my condition and within 3-days I was back to normal.
The service was quite frankly unbelievable, to pick an appointment of my choice the very day I needed to see a doctor at a convenient location and at a price which was affordable is just such tremendous value for money.
I have no hesitation in recommending DocTap.
