The Rycote Practice will be closed for essential staff training from 1pm on Tuesday 9th July for essential staff training. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience.

We are aware that some patients continue to experience problems with online access. Help can be found at which includes guides and video tutorials.

Private Patients

We do not routinely offer the opportunity for patients to register privately with the practice. The practice is committed to the NHS and providing those patients with the best possible NHS care. However in exceptional circumstances we will consider an application to be treated as a private patient. For example if you have a very prominent public profile and feel that your confidentiality might be compromised in the course of your treatment we will consider an application as a private patient. Please be aware that there are costs associated with each aspect of your care as a private patient.


Private Services for NHS Patients

As an NHS patient there is nothing to prevent you seeking a private referral should you need specialist treatment. You can read more about seeing a private specialist on our referrals page.


Private Services for Businesses

We will consider applications from organisations to provide private services for their employees. We would suggest that if you are in need of a private medical arrangement for your employees you contact us. Below are some examples of the services that we might be able to offer your organisation:

  • medical assessments and travel immunisations for companies with a large number employees who regularly travel aboard
  • medical assessments for long haul drivers of transport companies
  • medical assessments for construction workers who perform safety critical operations

Please not that we will endeavour to tailor a service to meet your needs and ensure that you are not competing with NHS patients for access to our services.
