"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.
"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
Excellent. Loved it.Monday, September 25, 2017
Very professional service and convenient. Thank you DocTapThursday, September 21, 2017
So happy I found this service, booked an appointment online for the same day. Was seen on the allocated time, no waiting around. My doctor couldn't be more caring and helpful. So thank you so much!Thursday, September 21, 2017
The doctor was very nice.Thursday, September 21, 2017
Easily the best doctor's appointment in my memory! Super compassionate and I actually had time to go through everything I wanted to say, which just isn't possible on the NHS under these government cuts anymore. I got useful advice and an actual solution to a mental health issue I've procrastinated on seeing a doctor about for months, because of the endless referrals that would have made it more stressful than anything else. Here it was simple to book, no need to queue, affordable and the appointment itself was really great. Feels like I'm actually getting somewhere. I would absolutely recommend the DocTap service.Wednesday, September 20, 2017

Super quick, efficient and lovely doctor. Would definitely use again instead of my local NHS GP as higher quality and more efficient service.Friday, September 15, 2017
So ideal - booking system was flawless, so many available time slots to choose from. The practice is set within a pharmacy which is extremely helpful. It just made the whole process of seeing a GP so much easier than normal and relieved the NHS from a bit of pressure. Win winThursday, September 14, 2017

Such a great experience. I'm a visitor from the US and was blown away with how quickly I was seen, how on-time the doctor was, the clean setting, the reasonable charge, the follow-up. Really great service. I have told my co-workers who also frequently visit.Tuesday, August 8, 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’.
