The family doctor. Redefined.
+richmond practice – private doctors’ service (since 2005)
Little did the +richmond practice team, who started out from a single room at Roseneath dental surgery, know that they would successfully redefine the way in which primary care is delivered in the UK. +richmond practice thus celebrates 10 years of innovation in practice, this autumn.
The group who prides itself in offering the services of private GPs, Paediatricians and Gynaecologists, in the community also work as a multi-disciplinary team from shared premises. Most of the specialists are sonographers and their work is supported by the latest in ultrasound technology available onsite. This departs from the existing provision in that GPs and specialists share the responsibility for cases through case discussion.
At +richmond practice the aim is to ensure that attending a doctors’ appointment is hassle free. You can therefore schedule a same day appointment, results request, repeat prescription via telephone or online. Specialist appointments are usually taken without a referral letter. Patients are attended to by the same doctor in the language of their choice, whether in English, German, French, Italian or Spanish.
Local Petersham founders Johanna and Sebastian Renz, developed the practice from the vision Sebastian had to start a “Gruppenpraxis” or what is also called a Polyclinic. The other ideas came from what the couple learnt from private health care provision in the USA, South Africa and particularly in Germany this they combined with their NHS experience to develop +richmond practice.
+richmond practice is a CQC and BUPA registered provider and were commended in the best professional service category by the Richmond Chamber of Commerce in 2012 and 2014.
