Welcome to 247 GP
Family Doctors

247 GP has been set up to serve the residents and visitors of Fourways, Bryanston, Olivedale, Kyalami, Sunninghill, Rivonia, Sandton, and the Greater Johannesburg and surrounding areas.

247 GP is a GP-based service to provide you and your family with access to family doctor services, both within and outside of normal operating hours.

247 GP is committed to excellence, and endeavours to offer the most modern and advanced treatments coupled with old-style, personalised care that is friendly, professional and prompt.

247 GP has been borne out of the realisation that good health encompasses a healthy physical, mental and social well-being. However, with the demands of 21st century living, it has become increasingly difficult to lead a properly balanced lifestyle with most people having to juggle a family, friends and career, and still make time for ourselves.

Understanding the importance of good health and the impact that poor health can have on all aspects of your life, 247 GP affords you the opportunity and convenience to attend to your health, and the health of your family, at a time that suits your busy lifestyle.
