A private medical practice refers to a healthcare facility or organisation that operates independently of the public healthcare system and provides medical services to patients fee-for-service. It is typically owned and operated by one or more healthcare professionals, such as doctors or specialists, who offer personalised care and medical services to individuals seeking private healthcare.

The journey to creating such an establishment involves many steps, which is why knowing how to start up and grow a successful private practice is essential. It provides a roadmap for professionals looking to transition from being an employee to owning and managing a successful healthcare business.
