"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."
DocTap provides convenient, affordable and above all excellent private GP services from our London clinics. Ideal if you are living, visiting or working in London and are looking to find a doctor nearby. Our GP appointments are conducted in person, face to face, not over the phone or via an app.
We only employ highly experienced UK accredited general practitioners who have a passion for helping their patients, whatever their medical needs. When booking 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.
Our prices are for a 15 minute consultation. There are no additional charges for issuing private prescriptions, sick notes or referral letters written 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.
"This is how all appointments with a doctor should be managed. Simple, efficient booking with clear time slots readily available. An easy and intuitive registration process on arrival followed by an attentive and thoughtful interaction with a motivated doctor. And you get sent the notes afterwards.
The very reasonable charge for the service hopefully ensures people only use it when they really need it. In my case, I spent 20 minutes in a phone queue trying to get an appointment with my regular doctor before giving up. I will use DocTap again."Patrick Birley
"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
"I needed swift reassurance from symptoms which had me concerned, and thought I would try DocTap. Their prices are lower than some Harley Street ones, yet their Doctors are as highly educated (mine was from Cambridge). The booking process is incredibly easy, user-friendly and swift. I felt like my doctor was attentive, engaged and supportive. Much of what she said put me at ease, which was exactly what I needed.
I would recommend DocTap to anyone in search of quality healthcare who would prefer a fast and accessible option. Communications when I had a billing question was also incredibly swift, friendly and accommodating. This is a great alternative service, thank you!"Leslie
"Extremely happy with the level of service provided by DocTap, everything was quick and smooth. The process of booking online was very quick and clear. The appointment itself was a breath of fresh air, plenty of time to explain your issues and no sense of feeling rushed at all, with the doctors going above and beyond in trying to help and offering advice. Will gladly be using this service going forward."Salar Ridha
"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
Brilliant service. Quick and easy to use website. Got seen in a matter of minutes of arriving at the practice. My doctor was very thorough and considerate and you even get sent your case notes. Would highly recommend this service.Thursday, June 22, 2017
Very happy with the service and the doctorThursday, June 22, 2017
Booked an appointment in bed this morning as I had a painful throat infection, saw a Doctor at 11:15, walked out fifteen minutes later with the tablets. No queues, no chemist, no grief, - exactly what you need when you feel rough and need to get back to work swiftly.Thursday, June 22, 2017
Quick efficient easy and good priceWednesday, June 21, 2017
The doctor and the booking process could not have been easier. The Dr was ready at the assigned time and probably one of the most positive, happy in her job, enthusiastic , proactive GP's I've ever met. She LISTENED and took my history on board, and was knowledgable and matter of fact about all the options. I will go back whenever I need! --- The only reason I give the premises 4 stars, (which the actual office was clean as a whistle, a was the shop) is the music in the shop is quite too loud, and the speaker is right outside the door of the GP rooms. Inside, it was softer with the door closed, but still too loud and it felt like I was in a Spa or something - it was a bit distracting... Other than that, this is a straightforward, easy solution.Tuesday, June 20, 2017
My doctor was incredibly kind, understanding, knowledgable, professional and pleasant. I absolutely hate going to the doctor, but this process was so easy and I couldn't have asked for a better doctor.Tuesday, June 20, 2017

Lovely new premises at Bond Street, it was easy to book & my change appointment when necessary. Doctor very approachable & informative.Thursday, June 15, 2017
Another seamless and incredibly efficient process from start to finish. I choose the Bond location this time, and the building the clinic is housed in is absolutely stunning. Not only one-stop shopping if you need to have any prescriptions filled, but a virtual oasis of health and wellness products, medications, natural beauty aids and aromatherapy make it a perfect setting for DocTap. The doctor was fantastic. Very thorough, accommodating and professional. I felt listened to and heard. She was able to prescribe medicine I needed rather swiftly that may have taken longer through ordinary channels, and recommended dietary and supplement tips she hand-wrote for me to try. This was my second time with DocTap, and the experience on all counts exceeded the last visit. I will most definitely use this service again, and recommend it without hesitation.Thursday, June 15, 2017
Brilliant, supportive doctor, full of empathy and helpful advice – my thanks.Tuesday, June 13, 2017

The doctor welcome me well and kindly listen to my request being very attentive to my concern.Saturday, June 10, 2017
Really appreciate being able to see a GP for an urgent appointment on a Saturday (rampant and very painful ear infection) rather than having to go to A&E and clog up NHS services. Would be great to extend to a Sunday service at this location, would be willing to pay even more if necessary.Saturday, June 10, 2017
Great service. Easy to use, appointment when I wanted it and a fantastic Doctor. Wish this service was available everywhere.Friday, June 9, 2017

View all London clinics. We currently have private doctor's surgeries in Liverpool Street / Spitalfields and Bond Street with more opening over the coming months.
At DocTap, our mission is to make convenient, affordable and above all excellent private GP care available to everyone. The NHS is an excellent service, but we understand that sometimes you need a bit more control over when and where you see a doctor. This is where we can help you. As a private GP London we can give you the treatment you need on your terms. Find a GP near me and book online today.
We firmly believe that GP appointments are better off carried out face to face with a doctor wherever possible. However, we recognise that sometimes you're short of time and cannot get to a GP surgery. For that reason we also offer the option of telephone consultations for repeat patients.Book GP Appointment
Our General Practitioners can assist in a wide variety 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 and then draw up a plan of action.
DocTap does not charge for 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.
You will receive full notes following your GP appointment. You are free to take them to your NHS GP or any other health provider. But we'd love it if you chose us!
Prices start at £29 for a 15 minute consultation. There are no prescription or sick note charges. 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 Spitalfields.
Our aspiration is to offer the most convenient, affordable and highest standard of private GP care 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 ‘Doc Tap’.
