What our patients say...

I really needed to see a GP and was tired of waiting to see my own. Managed to get an online consultation in less than an hour. Would highly recommend tapGP!

Quick sign up and got same day appointment. We are exhausted new parents and very much occupied with a newborn; worrying about my elderly mother ( strongheaded lady who told me everything is okay until it’s not). She is visiting from overseas and unfortunately experiences pretty bad gout flare up. She got a prescription from her doctor back home but we couldnt buy the medication from any pharmacies here in the UK. They suggested online consultation with a doctor and we are glad and very much relieved we did. Straightforward procedure to book and attend an appointment from home. Dr. Neil is very proffesional. Thank you for your help.

Easy to get an appointment at a time that suits you, the doctor I spoke to was excellent, he listened, asked lots of questions and actually helped me, rather than sitting in a queue on the phone for an hour, to wait for a call back god knows when, only to be told no one can see you. Definitely use again.

I needed urgent advice and medication out of hours. The administrative staff were very professional and efficient. I had an appointment booked almost immediately and the doctor was incredibly helpful both in his advice and in ensuring that I could obtain the required medication. Fantastically good value. I very highly recommend them.

Absolutely brilliant! I couldn’t get an appointment for another month at my GP. I got one the same day here and got my prescription. Very professional and friendly and took the time to answer my questions with care.

Just really excellent. Couldnt get urgent GP appointment at my own surgery, got appointment slot within an hour, Dr extremely pleasant, very thorough and went the extra mile, calling the hospital for me to make a plan of care and provide options, called me back promptly. Really considered me as an individual, i am so impressed.

Absolutely amazing I had an appointment at 21:50 which is so convenient you would never get that at a normal gp surgery.not only that but I was taken seriously and helped straight away after months of struggling with my gp and being constantly dismissed. I stumbled across tapGP looking for alternatives to my GP surgery and I'm so glad I did.I will definitely be using this in future.

I felt the need to write a review as I was so impressed with the service! I Booked at 8pm on a Friday evening for a Saturday afternoon online appointment. It all felt to good to be true when booking as seemed to easy and I kept thinking will it be any good! I was so pleased it was for my 3.5 year old son! The GP was so detailed and asked so many questions and spoke to my son. Would highly recommend where possible as so much less hassle for the sake of £29!

I was cynical about this company, especially when they asked for personal details during the sign up process. But I took what felt like a gamble and continued with the process anyway because we had struggled to get an appointment with our local doctor and because it was a weekend. We managed to get an appointment on the same day we signed up, the doctor was really knowledgeable and helpful, prescribed my son antibiotics for an ear infection, and now my son is recovering. FYI - I don't receive any payment from the company for saying that I had a really positive experience.

I’m impressed with the speed in getting same day appointment. Friendly and talented GP who diagnosed it very quickly. Easy to collect prescriptions too.

Got an appointment within two hours, doctor connected right on time. Listened to everything, issued a prescription- would definitely recommend after two weeks of not getting an appointment at my own surgery.

All of our online doctors and clinicians have trained in the NHS for a minimum of 5 years and have also worked for over 5 years in an NHS trust. They undergo regular remote consultation training and assessment. Our clinicians are registered with the GMC and are members of RCGP. tapGP is also registered with the CQC; an organisation that regulates all healthcare services in England.

Our services are currently only available to residents in England and Wales. If you require medical help abroad please contact us before making an appointment.

Absolutely! Any child under 16 years will need to be registered under the parent or guardian’s account. The parent or guardian must be present throughout their consultation. Children 16 years and over will need to create their own account before making an appointment. 

We advise that you consent to allowing us to share your tapGP medical records with your own GP. This is to ensure you receive better and safer care and will mean we can prescribe a broader range of medications. 

Absolutely not, tapGP does not require you to de-register with your GP and will not affect you making future appointments with your own GP.

You can arrange a private blood test by booking an appointment and discussing your requirements with one of our GPs. Your GP will arrange the appropriate blood tests and explain how you can book the test.

The cost of the appointment includes prescription-writing. However, the cost of the medication prescribed will vary depending on the pharmacy. The pharmacy may also charge a private dispensing fee. NHS exemptions for prescriptions do not apply.

After your appointment, a code will be sent to you by text message and email instantly. Take this code to your local pharmacy and advise the pharmacist that you have a prescription generated by Signature Rx. 

The pharmacist can issue your prescription by visiting and entering the code along with your date of birth.

Yes, our GPs can issue a fit (sick) note if they think you need one. Please request a sick note during your consultation with the GP. Your fit note will be sent to your email address soon after your appointment. You can then forward your fit note to your employer or school. tapGP fit notes cannot be used for social security or statutory pay purposes.

tapGP currently does not have direct access to your NHS medical records. However, we understand the importance of medical history, and we recommend having your medical records including medications readily available during the appointment to ensure the most comprehensive care.
