The Avicenna Mission

We are all aware of the pressures that NHS services are under which has led to patients complaining about the difficulty in getting appointments, being unable to see their preferred doctor, limited to only one problem per consultation, being rushed with short consultation times. These issues have all led to compromise in the quality of the holistic care to the patient.

Our GP service aims to help relieve pressure on NHS services, offering private care for those that are in a position to pay for themselves.

We believe your health is better when you have a more personal relationship with your doctors. Our GPs offer a personal service that ensures continuity of care across appointments.

We have a simple philosophy. We treat you as an individual, get to know you, and deliver holistic care that’s responsive to your needs and preferences. We offer you a choice of male or female GP, who are experienced in managing a variety of medical problems. We also give you maximum flexibility with appointments at a range of times, including weekends and bank holidays.

Avicenna Health is registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and all of our Doctors are registered with the General Medical Council (GMC)

We had a great experience with Dr Sattar. He saw my daughter with just 1.5hours notice and gave me the correct advice to proceed with antibiotics for my poorly daughter. I would recommend this service and will certainly be using it again when necessary.

I am very impressed with Avicenna Health. My first encounter was 23rd December when I had very little hope of seeing a doctor and I was able to get a consultation and medication before Christmas, I have used them since as has my partner and I remain impressed with responsiveness and quality of advice. I have recommended to friends and would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.
Just before the pandemic, I approached Avicenna through google search, for specialised and dedicated GP help manage all areas of illnesses for my vulnerable elderly parents. Dr Sattar, Dr Mohsin and the team remained consistent with their care, very efficient, always prompt, well focussed, professional, extremely knowledgeable on all health issues and they go out of their way each time! God directed me to turn to Avicenna last week for my elderly dad who has been suffering from viral infection. Dr Sattar quickly arranged the home visit, thoroughly followed up his diagnosis, and with his expert medical advice my elderly dad is already feeling better. An absolute relief from hospitalisation. I wish everyone at Avicenna Health the very best of success as you all deserve it! Thankyou for your continuous excellent care , support and service.

Very impressed with the expendiency, professionalism and kindness of the doctor. Both my dad and I are unable to go to the doctor, so having the option of calling Avicenna was a life saver.
