Looking for a private GP recommendation in West London (Earl's Court, South Ken, Chelsea)

Hi I'm looking for a private GP recommendation in West London (Earl's Court, South Ken, Chelsea). When we lived in the US our pediatrician was also an internist so we were able to be seen, all together as a family with back to back appts and get those appts on the same day. He was familiar with all of our families' issues which made it really helpful - and we developed a great relationship with him.

Here with our local GP surgery even for pain fail ailments for the kids (ear infections, strep etc) They always tell us it will be 1-2wks before we get an appt and if we really need to be seen, take them to ER. We've switched GP surgeries and the second isn't any better - and at both every time we have a different Dr so it feels like no continuity of care.

I'm lucky in that my company pays for the private insurance - so I can go private, but am unsure about just picking one at random from their website or a google search.

Ideally I'm looking for a practice that has Dr's for adults (internist, GP etc) and also pediatricians for the kids. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Hi. I can highly recomend fantastic clinic.It's called Moore Medical Practise. I personaly(was-moved to nw London now) and few of my very close friends are using this practise and it's just outstanding. i would recomend (not sure if i can state the name of the dr??? Dr Brovig!!!She is just briliant!!!)
Thair website is www.drsimonmoore.co.uk (don't know how to do the link).
It's so hard to get good dr. They can take you if it is emergency within couple of hourse or they do home visits too.They have everything.I promise you wont get wrong if you go with them. Let me know if you go how was it....good luck

I've used Simon Moore, too. He does seem to know the best consultants for referrals. You could also try the Westover Clinic in S. Ken.

I have no idea about private places I'm afraid.
However every surgery will have appointments available for each day,in my place you phone up at 8am to book one,or you can have a phone consultation.
