It may be known for its facials and massages, but Tring spa Champneys now also houses a private doctor’s surgery in its lush grounds.

GP firm DOCTORnow is providing services from its second surgery in the grounds of Champneys in Tring, offering residents, resort guests and Champneys Club Members everything from health checks and consultations to vaccinations for flu and travel-associated conditions.

DOCTORnow is already well-established in Beaconsfield, Bucks, but has launched a new surgery in the area with a team of independent primary health care profession.

According to the service, most patients use the surgery alongside their NHS GP, with many referred to DOCTORnow for services not currently available on the NHS.

Dr Peter Petrie, who leads the surgery alongside Drs Brian McGirr and Richard Angwin, said: “We are delighted to be able to collaborate with Champneys to further enhance their wellbeing offering.

“DOCTORnow continues to enjoy success in its current Buckinghamshire location so to be able to offer the service in Tring is a very positive step for us.”
