A pharmacy in Battersea is offering a free private GP service in honour of 70 years of the NHS.

Doctors at Robards Pharmacy, Battersea Rise will be seeing patients for free from 9am till 6pm on Thursday, July 5.

The service will include health check-ups, prescriptions, referrals, sick notes and advice.

Freddie Mazaheri, owner of Robards Pharmacy said: “To honour one of the nation’s most loved institutions, we’re making our private GP service free to the people of Battersea. As a nation, we are all very proud of the NHS and it is something to be celebrated.

“But we also need to take this time to recognise the struggles the NHS faces from funding cuts to more complex disease. To ensure a sustainable future for the NHS, we need to be using its resources responsibly.”

The service is powered by MedicSpot and connects patients and doctors via video call, using advanced diagnostic equipment that enables the doctor to perform full clinical examinations remotely.

Dr Abby Hyams, a GP for MedicSpot, said: “MedicSpot allows me to work from home in a clinically supported environment whilst still allowing me to do NHS work. It’s the best of both worlds.”
