Doctors Clinic Group opens new centre in Twickenham

Dave Mezher, chief executive officer of the Doctors Clinic Group

Private GP practice the Doctors Clinic Group (DCG) has opened its latest clinic in Twickenham. 

Funding for the new clinic was received through follow on funding for continued nationwide expansion from its investors Oakfield Capital in September.

The new clinic will offer a range of private GP services, including mental health and wellbeing, health screens, specialist medicals and referrals to specialists.

DCG offers more than 40 services, ranging from standard GP appointments and screenings to women’s health, including maternity risk assessment, to virtual GP and corporate wellbeing and occupational health services.

The group has also recently launched a comprehensive mole checking service as part of its wider face-to-face and tele-dermatology offering. This service is currently available at its polyclinic in Oxford Street.

The Twickenham clinic marks the group’s sixth opening this year, including its first clinic outside of London, which opened in Birmingham in October.

Since its launch in 2014, DCG has opened a total of 18 clinics, 17 of which are in London. Following the opening of its Birmingham site, it renamed from the London Doctors Clinic to the Doctors Clinic Group.

‘Mental health will be a focus area, with employees having access to psychiatrists and counsellors through face-to-face or video appointments,’ said Dave Mezher, CEO of DCG. ‘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.’

Mezher said in addition to DCG’s primary care services, its doctors can refer into its secondary care partners for appointments with its consultant specialists at its Oxford Street polyclinic and across the UK.

‘We’re continuing to expand our offering, especially in secondary care, and are on track to launch further services in 2020 for both consumers and corporate clients – we can share more details next year,’ Mezher continued. ‘We are also continuing with our nationwide clinic expansion in 2020.’

As reported in September, DCG acquired occupational health provider Maitland Medical as part of its nationwide expansion strategy.

‘Maitland Medical has enabled us to provide expert occupational health services for all our corporate clients. Our occupational health nurses provide onsite services to businesses and their employees, rather than providing occupational health services within our clinics,’ Mezher said.
