Formby GP: private, ethical general practice

Our private surgery is conveniently located opposite Freshfield Station – just down the road from the stunning Formby beach and pinewoods. We offer a mix of evening and morning clinics, as well as home visits, video, phone and WhatsApp consultations: the choice is yours!

We know that your time and money are precious. We will not recommend investigations or treatments that you don’t need. We believe in offering tests and treatments that are more likely to help you than to harm you! If you have symptoms or concerns, or a family history of a particular condition, we will talk to you so we can decide together which tests are appropriate.

You are very kind and understanding.

Speed of being seen. Doctor looked at my details at 11pm and brought my appointment forward

I wish them all the best with this venture. John and Heather are doing this around their NHS work to provide a service for the area. It’s definitely a service our demographic would use and if it frees up some NHS capacity then great!

John was fantastic and helped out in every possible way he could. He is a credit to his profession and I would be happy to see him again in future.

Having worked with John for a couple of years in Sandbach, I know he’s a great GP and a lovely person. He was well respected by our patients and well respected by the clinical team as a caring, knowledgeable, hard working doctor. I know John will have set up his services in harmony with the local GP services and as a NHS GP I wish we had some private providers around us as good and as caring as John and Heather. I think there is a role for private practice that runs along side NHS GP and John’s model is perhaps one that might spread.

Dr Neil Paul

Very efficient and friendly service, I saw Dr Ryan this morning for the first time and she was very reassuring, friendly but professional and efficient

Anon.

Dr Ryan and Dr Cosgrove work extremely hard to ensure that they give the best possible care to their patients. They are careful to explain the treatment that they are recommending and also to give an honest assessment of the health problems that their patients are experiencing.

Anon.

The service was wonderful, really reassuring and quick, but not rushed.

Anon.

Excellent service. GP was lovely and took plenty of time to explain the procedure. No feeling of being rushed at all.

Anon.

I can thoroughly recommend this Private Practice from personal experience. Very Professional and very convenient. Having a Private GP Practice is an amazing step forward. They will ease the terrific pressure on the NHS, brought about partly by the Pandemic and it’s aftermath.
