My Healthcare Clinic: Committed to Caring

Dr Akash Patel

The award-winning MyHealthcare clinic near the Broadway provides high quality, affordable and accessible medical and dentistry treatment

‘We opened the first MyHealthcare Clinic in Wandsworth in 2014 and the second here in Fulham in 2018,’ says Dr Akash Patel. ‘Our philosophy has always been the same: to use state-of-the-art technology to provide the best private medical and dentistry care within a flexible appointment structure and at transparent, affordable prices. Also, we wanted to bring back the “traditional” friendly GP approach that enables patients to get to know their doctor or dentist.’

Akash is the Medical Director of the family-run business, which was named Best Private Healthcare Clinic in London at the 2019 Private Healthcare Awards. ‘Our prime focus is on the core GP and dentistry services that people need on a regular basis. We have seven experienced GPs and two practice nurses and my colleague Dr Theo Sioutis leads a team of eight dentists and three hygienists who cover all procedures from children’s dentistry and orthodontics to mouth reconstruction with implants.

‘On the GP side we offer general consultations, baby immunisations such as chicken pox which aren’t available on the NHS, health screening, travel vaccines and blood tests. If specific advice or treatment is required, we have in-house consultants in disciplines from dermatology and gynaecology to paediatrics and psychology. These specialists take regular appointments here and they are part of the MyHealthcare family.’

Akash trained at Imperial College, worked as a junior doctor at St Mary’s, Paddington and practiced as a GP in Brook Green. He is a firm believer in nurturing the doctor-patient relationship. ‘That’s why our appointments are for 20 minutes – that gives us time to understand each case. Patients know that they can always see me – they won’t have to start from scratch every time – and they have my contact details and are welcome to ask followup questions. That applies to every practitioner.

‘When it comes to appointments, we save enough slots in a day to accommodate patients who want to see someone there and then. We are open seven days a week (from 8am Monday to Friday and 10am Saturday and Sunday) with late evenings until 8pm Monday to Wednesday. It’s all about convenience.’

A key element of the MyHealthcare ethos is a commitment to providing medical care at a fair price. Hence, in addition to pay-as-you-need treatments, the company has developed an unrivalled variety of excellent value membership plans for GP and/or dental services and for individual, family and corporate patients. In particular, great emphasis is placed on looking after families: for example, if two adults take a combined membership for GP and dentistry, two children are entitled to free care up to the age of 18.

‘If there’s one phrase that sums up what we do, it is continuity of care,’ adds Akash. ‘We like to create a bond with each patient and that allows us to talk to them informally. Often those discussions can make all the difference in how we choose to care for our patients.’
