Any questions?

No you do not need to come into a GP clinic in Reading, all our appointments are delivered online.

You can use Mayfield Clinic alongside your existing NHS GP practice in Reading. We believe in joined-up care; we don’t believe that it is in your best interests to have different doctors independently trying to treat you. For this reason, once you’ve seen a Mayfield Clinic GP we aim (with your permission) to share your consultation notes back with your current NHS GP in Reading.

For example, if you can’t get an appointment at your local GP practice in Reading this week, you can book in with Mayfield Clinic’s GPs. With your consent, we’ll share the Mayfield Clinic consultation notes back with you and your Reading NHS GP, so that when you next see your NHS GP they will have a full picture of your care history.

If you need an online consultation with a private GP in Reading, Mayfield Clinic provides same-day GP appointments to everyone in the UK. You don’t have to be located in Reading or the surrounding area to benefit from appointments with our expert GPs.

Where the GP feels it's appropriate, they can issue prescriptions that can be sent to your local Boots pharmacy in Reading. There are a number of Boots Pharmacies in Reading you can visit to collect your prescription. Please see directions for Boots Oracle Centre:

The doctor may suggest tests you need to take following your appointment. Mayfield Clinic offers home test kits which can be purchased for an additional cost from our website. The test will be posted to your home address in Reading where you can take the test and post it to our lab to be analysed. The results will then be sent to you via text message and if required you can make another appointment to discuss with the GP.

How online GP appointments work

You will not need to download any software or sign up to any accounts to attend your online GP appointment. Our online appointments are conducted on WebEx which will open in your internet browser.

WebEx, the software we use to conduct our online GP appointments, is very secure by default. They have security cyber governance and do not share or sell any customer information. Your online appointment link is unique to you and is not shared or used by anyone else so you can be sure your appointment is confidential.

10 minutes before your appointment start time you will be emailed a joining link for your appointment. You will need to click on the link (from your mobile phone, tablet or computer) and you will be taken to WebEx where you will be asked to enter your name and give access to use your camera and microphone. Your doctor will be notified that you have joined the appointment and they will join at the allotted appointment time.

Yes, your doctor will be in a private room for the duration of your online GP appointment, and it will not be recorded. You should try to take the appointment in a place you can talk confidentially.

If you are struggling to hear or see your online doctor, there is a chat function in WebEx where you can type a message conveying any problems you are having and we will try to resolve them. If you can’t access the link or have not received the link 10 minutes before your appointment, please email us on and our support team will be happy to assist you and if required, set up your appointment via telephone.

  • Ensure you have a quiet place to join the appointment where you can talk confidentially to the online GP with no background noise
  • Try to attend your online GP appointment somewhere where you have good internet connection
  • Make sure your microphone and camera are working on your device
  • Try to sit in a well-lit room so your doctor can clearly see you
