Dr Martin Saweirs  MRCGP, MBChB, BSc (Hons)

The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease
— Sir William Osler, the "Father of Modern Medicine"
 

I'm Dr Martin Saweirs, an experienced private GP based in Central and West London. I currently consult at 132 Harley Street and also at The Women's Wellness Centre in Chelsea. Please look through the menu above to see the range of services I offer, or browse the media for some of my videos and articles.

 

To my mind, medicine doesn't need to be complicated. I take great pride in my brand of comprehensive, straightforward and approachable medicine, and it is something I know my patients value too. Each of my patients are distinct individuals - and this is exactly how I treat you. I always work in partnership with you to develop your personalised treatment plan. I strive to be flexible and easily accessible, so I'm happy to consult my patients via telephone or by Skype if more convenient for you. 

 

As a GP, I see people of all ages and gender, with any and every ailment and I’m a firm believer in treating the person, not just the symptoms. To that end, I believe in always making my patients feel comfortable enough to discuss all their concerns, no matter how big or small. By doing this I make sure you get the care you need and deserve.


My Background

My father was a Care of The Elderly Consultant, and I grew up with a continual association to the world of medicine. I accompanied him during work-experience as a teenager, and to this day I vividly remember the heartfelt care he showed for patients, relatives and staff. This inspired me to follow in his footsteps, and I studied medicine at The University of Edinburgh. During this time I also attained a Bachelor of Science degree in Microbiology and Infection. 

 

After qualifying in 2009 I moved to London to start life as a junior doctor. Lots of busy jobs in lots of West London teaching hospitals have given me extensive exposure and hands-on involvement in a vast array of specialities, including: general medicine, surgery, paediatrics, obstetrics and gynaecology, and psychiatry.

 

It was this huge variety that first piqued my interest in general practice, and working as a GP during my time as a junior doctor sealed the decision for me. My training on the highly regarded Riverside GP scheme based in Chelsea gave me invaluable experience, and led to my becoming a Member of The Royal College of General Practitioners.

 

As a result of this wealth of experience, I am uniquely placed to provide a personal, comprehensive and tailored range of services, delivered to the highest clinical standards.
