Our expert GPs want to ensure they provide the best service possible to patients which is why we don’t offer consultations online as you would be unable to have a full assessment.
Prescriptions are issued at the discretion of the doctor based on what they believe to be most appropriate for your condition. They can prescribe all medication normally prescribed by a general practitioner, including the pill.
We do not prescribe morphine and methadone.
We can only refer you to a private specialist, not an NHS specialist. Should you have private health insurance then they should accept a referral letter from GP Matters. If you have been unwell we can also issue sick notes and related letters for your employer or school. We are also able to provide certificates verifying fitness to participate in sporting or other events.
Please note that we don’t offer a 24-hour ‘out of hours’ service.
Our service is not suitable for medical emergencies, so if you need urgent medical care then please contact 111 or 999, or visit A&E.
If you have a blood or sample test done with one of your GPs, depending on the kind of testing being carried out you can receive your results in a matter of hours through to a few days for more extensive tests.
You can request how you receive the results and the options are by email, post, by calling us or we can call you.

No but our GP will talk to you to find out your medical history at the beginning of your consultation. If you are on any regular medication it is helpful if you bring it with you.
Your GP Matters doctor will be able to see your notes for any previous appointments you have booked with us.
Appointments with GPs are not usually covered by insurance companies. If you are referred to a consultant or have a procedure done at GP Matters then the majority of these will be covered by insurance companies. It is advisable to check your policy or ask your broker or insurance company to be sure of what is covered.
