Doctors Clinic Group launches clinic in Birmingham

Private healthcare company Doctors Clinic Group (DCG), also known as London Doctors Clinic, has built on its 15 private GP clinics in London with the opening of a new clinic in Birmingham, located in the office of specialist financial services mutual, Wesleyan.

Group chief executive Dave Mezher said: “Launching into Birmingham is a big moment for us as it means we can expand nationally to meet the huge demand for convenient access to GPs and other medical services across the UK.”

DCG stated that Mezher has initiated a series of major changes to the company in preparation for nationwide expansion, including a rebrand and subsequent name-change, in addition to the recent acquisition of Occupational Health provider, Maitland Medical.

Mezher said: “Doctors Clinic Group now offers over 35 services, ranging from standard GP appointments and screenings to women’s health – including maternity risk assessment – to virtual GP and corporate well-being services. Mental health will be a focus area, with employees having access to psychiatrists through face-to-face or video appointments. It is a very exciting time in the company’s growth, and we look forward to helping patients in a bigger way than ever before.”

Caroline Hill, chief people and strategy officer at Wesleyan said: “We’re delighted that Doctors Clinic Group have chosen to base their first office outside London within the Wesleyan building. As a specialist financial services mutual for medical professionals, we’re pleased to have tenants who are so aligned to our own business.

“This arrangement also allows us to provide an additional benefit for staff as we have an agreed number of onsite GP appointments that they can access as well video consultations. We attract staff from right across the region and it’s not always easy for them to get a GP appointment at a time to suit them. This service will make it easier for them to see a doctor when they need one.”

DCG’s standard 15-minute appointment costs £59 and can be booked by phone or online right up to the last minute.
