Private GP Scotland FAQs
What do GP doctors do?
General Practitioners, also known as GPs, are primary health care providers, meaning they are the first line of health care for people in the UK. A MedicSpot private GP will diagnose and treat your health issue during your consultation.
Can you see a doctor without being registered?
You do not need to pre-register to have a video consultation with a MedicSpot private doctor.
How far can I live from my doctors surgery?
It does not matter how far away you live from a MedicSpot clinic because we do not require patients to pre-register. You can visit any MedicSpot walk in centre to speak with one of our NHS registered doctors.
How do I find out who my GP is?
To find out who will be your MedicSpot private doctor for any given day, call our customer service number and they will be able to tell you who is on-call.
Who do I call for medical advice?
MedicSpot’s customer service team is not medically trained so they cannot provide medical advice over the phone or on chat. NHS 24, Scotland’s health information and self-care advice service, recommends calling 111 if you’re too ill to wait until your GP opens and you need medical advice. The 111 phone number should not be used for medical emergencies. If you have a medical emergency, dial 999 immediately.
How do I get a same day appointment?
