About us –
Dr Wayne Cottrell MBChB
I qualified as a doctor in South Africa in 1994, from the University of the Orange Free State and started practising as a Private GP in London in 2001.
I have over 17 years experience of family practice and sexual health screening and I offer a completely confidential, professional, non judgemental service from start to end. I am a firm believer in preventative medicine and in involving my patients in the decision making process. My practice is registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC Provider ID 1-2149948301)
I am fully registered with the GMC and HPCSA, and have a licence to practice as a GP both in the UK and in South Africa. I am on the UK GP Register and NHS England – London (North West) PCT Performers list. I was revalidated in January 2016. I am also a member of the Independent Doctors Federation ( IDF) and the British Association of Sexual Health and HIV (BASHH)
When it comes to your health and in particular your sexual health, it is worth paying a bit more to see someone who has the experience and can give you the right advice regarding testing and treatment from the start. You wouldn’t take your Mercedes to a VW dealer, so why see a regular GP when you have a sexual health issue? I will address your concerns in a completely confidential environment and if needed perform any testing in as little as 15-30 minutes. We usually have most results back the same day.
We discuss and agree all costs beforehand so you know exactly where you stand and we will always provide you with clear and accurate advice based on current British Association for Sexual Health and HIV (BASHH) guidelines.
There is no need to wait for days or weeks to see your NHS GP, or lose half a day of work/pay in order to attend an NHS walk in clinic, when you can have a same day appointment, be screened and have results by the end of the day.
Having worked in private and NHS practice for many years, I understand that patients prefer to establish a relationship with a doctor and value continuity of care. We take your concerns seriously, giving you the time to discuss them with someone who will listen and help in a non judgemental way and is also highly experienced.
We have a team of three doctors and a nurse and you can choose to see the same one every time, for continuity of care. I ensure that all the doctors who work with me have the same high standards and practice with the same ethos that I do.
If you are worried about a risky sexual contact and not sure if you have been exposed, we can advise as to what tests to do. It is essential that you see someone with experience in the diagnosis and management of STI’s to ensure you are given correct advice.”
Dr Poonam Salker MBBS BSc MRCGP DRCOG DSFRH Darzi Fellowship 2016
I qualified from Medicine with a Distinction in 2009. I embarked upon a career in General Practice from which I qualified in 2014. During my training, I was exposed to many different medical specialties which have helped me be an all-rounder in General Practice. In particular I have an interest in Women’s Health and Sexual Health. I am fully registered with the GMC (GMC Number 7043247) and I am appraised by the NHS on an annual basis.
I am committed to providing my patients with the highest quality of care and I regularly update my clinical skills in order to do so using an open approach, I ensure that patients feel comfortable and at ease during my consultations. I am a strong believer in using a patient-centred style as I feel this empowers patients to make decision regarding their health needs.
As a GP, I am often told by my patients that I am approachable, holistic and thorough. I pride myself on these accolades and strive to maintain these consultation skills. Being a GP is a remarkable occupation and my daily driver is to know that I have been able to help improve an individual’s health.
I am available for appointments on Fridays from 8- 2pm and can be booked online or by calling the clinic on 02031979100
Dr Rachael Cave MBChB BMedSci DFSRH MRCGP
am a friendly and approachable general practitioner. I take time to listen carefully to all my patients and address their specific and individual concerns. To achieve optimal health and wellness, I believe in looking at the whole person rather than at isolated symptoms. I always adhere to the philosophy that prevention is better than cure and I can help you with any lifestyle changes that you may wish to make.
I am a fully qualified doctor, member of the Royal College of General Practitioners, member of the General Medical Council (number 7071564) and on the National Performer’s List. I have a special interest in sexual health and have worked in an NHS sexual health clinic. I have the Diploma of Sexual and Reproductive Health.
