“With you for the journey, come what may, providing you with excellent clinical care, cradle to grave. Bringing back that beautiful concept of “my doctor, my patient”. We treat illness as an opportunity, to find the root cause and what else this might mean for your health. It’s an opportunity to discover your full health picture and to use it to create opportunities to reach your full life health and life potential!” Dr. Houda Ounnas
Family Medicine /General Practice:
We offer all standard GP services including
diagnostics for many acute symptoms such as ear, nose and throat infections, flu, colds, and other illnesses. You can also rely on us to treat all of your chronic care needs such as hypertension, diabetes, elevated cholesterol, and others.
We offer a variety of preventative care services such as annual physical exams, male and female health checks, cervical screenings, travel consultations, and immunizations, and wellness exams.
We believe in the emerging field of progressive medicine, with all that umbrella encompasses preventative medicine, lifestyle medicine and even some skills borrowed from functional and integrative medicine. The aim of progressive medicine is to use the illness and presenting complaint, as an opportunity to discover the root cause of the problem and treat that and any underlying ongoing risk factors to your health. It is also an opportunity to examine your overall health picture and use it to unlock any opportunities for growth, wellness, mental, physical and emotional wellbeing to reach your optimum health and life potential.
We use a proactive approach that aims to optimize your physical, psycho-emotional, and cognitive states. Let us serve you with the skill mix best suited for your condition. This is actually how we approach most medical problems and most of your consultations will be in this style. Unless it’s a straightforward report or a travel consultation where you have no other concern. This is why the first appointment is long so we can get to know eachothers and become partners in your illness journey, bringing back the long lost concept of “ My doctor, My patient”. I sincerely believe every appointment is a meeting of two experts, you in the illness you ae experiencing and us in the disease or condition we would diagnose and treat you for.
Dr Ounnas is a pioneer in this field and is the first female doctor to embrace it in the UK. She has developed her own “Ounnas Matrix model of care” and has spoken about that and about Progressive Primary care in Tokyo, Japan in May 2019. The aim is to have more doctors embrace this field and consulting style, and more patients adopt healthier lifestyles. This in turn has the potential to ignite a ripple effect, allowing more people around the world to be treated with this comprehensive, holistic, 360 degrees approach.
Little angels are always welcome at Ounnas medical, where we service them with all GP services for children varying from immunizations to baby checks to acute illnesses or referrals to pediatricians for chronic or congenital problems. We understand the challenges of having a new baby and hence we offer these services either at our clinic site or at your convenience at home. Dr Ounnas is an experienced GP but has also completed a Pediatric hospital rotation at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle as a junior doctor.

We know that living with chronic disease can leave with mixed feelings of frustration, uncertainty, hope and fear. However, it’s not as scary or confusing if you have a good doctor and a good plan! That is why we offer you care plans that do not just confirm diagnosis or treat the flare up episodes but aim to empower you to be able to live well with the chronic disease. We agree with you a comprehensive management plan, including as and when needed medications, referrals, monitoring tests and an explanation of what the disease means to you and how to improve the prognosis and prevent deterioration and reduce relapse episodes.

It always amuse me how womens’ health is often used as an interchangeable word for gynaecology even within the medical profession! In reality we are not our umh female organs lets say… Modern women have far more challenging health concerns related to their womanhood, which expand beyond breast checks and cervical smears. Women experience some conditions their male counterparts would never know such as PMS, childbearing and the menopause. Women even respond to some conditions differently such as migraines and other neurological, endocrine and mental health problems. You are allowed to share concerns related to your womanhood with a doctor who will listen. You’re welcome to even come see me about your hair! hell you actually, must come see me if you have a concern about your hair! we might discover some deficiency caused by a more serious illness or it might be something easily correctable and you no longer need to put up with it. You might have just experienced or remembered some form of emotional trauma, you might want wrinkle reduction treatment or skin care consultation, you might be worried about your fertility or want to check your egg reserve and consider your options. you might just not like your form of contraception that you’ve always bene given, you’re allowed to come see me even if the pill delivers the contraceptive effect, but for whatever reason you don’t like it and wish to discuss an alternative. I will never dismiss your concerns, no matter how big or small. If it bothers you, it bothers me! No judgement, no matter your choices…. Smile girl, you’ve found Ounnas Medical
Ok so you might be fit and healthy and hardly ever see a doctor unless someone tells you to, however, you might wish to get a cardiovascular health check after age 40 (Cardio vascular disease is more common and unfortunately leads to more fatalities in men) or a masculine health check with or without blood tests at any age (Testicular health from age 20 and prostate from age 50) We also offer STD screens, Zika virus screening, nutrition and stress management and aesthetic consultations for men. The male face needs different considerations when enhancing features or turning back the clock.

So, you do not feel well, you know something is not right, but you cannot get the help you require, or you feel guilty seeking help because you are not as unwell as others might be. This is because, mental health services are often organised in such a way that prioritises understandably the more severe mental illnesses such as psychoses, bipolar and schizophrenia. Here we offer mental health care for mild and moderate adult mental health issues. Dr Ounnas our founder has completed a 6 months psychiatry rotation at the Tranwell unit Gateshead as a junior doctor. She has since taken a special interest in mental health and completed both standard training as well as innovative training using more modern methods of dealing with mental health such as schema therapy and the identification of complex trauma. She does not claim to be a psychologist but lets say a GP+ in mental health and she certainly has the confidence to pick on even the subtlest of issues such as unhelpful schemas and would alert you to them and refer you accordingly. Please note we do not prescribe drugs for ADHD or deal with child or Elderly care Psychiatry. We focus on adults of working age.
We can complete Visa medicals, Insurance reports and driving medicals so long as you can provide us a copy of your full GP records.

We offer the same clinical services as above to patients of all age groups for acute or chronic conditions. In addition we offer 2 extra services for this age group. The first one is a home visit where we go through their past medical history and current problems, and check all medications and necessary and there are no duplicates and no outstanding clinical needs that might not have been noticed. We will create a clear care plan that they can use to hand over to any carers or members of the health or social care teams visiting as well as if you wished their time poor NHS GP, whom I’m sure will appreciate it. You might wish to gift yourself or your ageing parent a health assessment to keep them well and prevent old age morbidities and disabilities.

We also use this opportunity to have difficult conversations such as those relating to advanced care directive, power of attorney, etc.
