C.Me® is now available at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, offering private GP services.
At C.Me®, we have over 35 years’ private General Practice experience and now offer our expert medical care service to patients. We can deliver rapid access X-ray, ultrasounds, CT scans, blood tests and radiology services and, where necessary, we can organise urgent assessments with Specialist Consultants.

What happens if my appointment takes longer than planned?
We always endeavour to provide as much flexibility as possible and will do all we can to accommodate any extended appointments, should you require more time on the day, however, additional consultation fees may also apply.
What happens if I miss my appointment?
We do operate a cancellation policy. We’re pleased to cancel and re-schedule any appointments at any time, without any penalty, up to 24 hours before your assessment.
However, less than 24 hours’ notice of cancellation, re-scheduling or non-attendance on the day, does incur a 50% cancellation fee.
If you are aware you may be late for your appointment please contact our administration team on 020 3955 5444 at the earliest opportunity and every effort will be made to accommodate you.
Regretfully, we cannot guarantee to be able to complete your appointment if you do not arrive on time.
Will my appointment, or any additional tests, be covered by my medical insurance policy?
Whether your consultation or tests are covered by your insurance policy depends upon the Terms & Conditions of your policy. Most UK private medical policies exclude primary care from the range of benefits that are covered, however, there are some exceptions (particularly if you are covered by an international medical policy, for example) depending upon your policy. Please contact your insurer to clarify the extent of your benefits.
Chelsea Medics accepts direct settlements from BUPA International and AXA International insurance companies.
Most insurers will only refund the cost of blood tests, MRI’s or other diagnostic steps if they are requested by a specialist consultant in association with a pre-authorised claim. Please do contact your insurer if you are unsure of the terms or benefits provided by your policy.
What happens if my doctor recommends additional tests?
Your doctor may feel that further tests, for example, blood tests, are warranted to confirm any diagnosis. Please note that you need to pay for any additional tests yourself.
Can I arrange a referral to a specialist consultant through Chelsea Medics?
Yes, one of the benefits of seeing a private doctor is to provide you with a choice of specialists. When arranging your care we are influenced by only one factor: selecting the very best service available.
