Our Philosophy

Our private GP's philosophy at Southdowns Private Healthcare is to help you to make time for your health. We offer a first class private doctors service where we can treat all our patients as individuals, making time to discuss their concerns in detail, ensuring that they can be well-informed about their health at all times.

We are all NHS doctors and believe in NHS care, however we are aware that in our roles in the NHS, we are constrained by budgets and policies, which mean that we can’t always give our patients the time that they deserve. Our private clinic based in Emsworth, Hampshire in easy reach of Portsmouth, Havant, Chichester and Bosham offers first class, convenient care.

Our mission is to offer you outstanding patient care and a responsive, professional service, enabling you to make time for your health.

Southdowns Private Healthcare offers you an alternative health service which can be used to supplement the service which you receive from the NHS.

Southdowns Private Healthcare doctors care about being approachable, easy to talk to, and treating individuals not numbers.
