Bosses at worst performing GP surgery for face-to-face appts live in a ... trends now
The bosses of England's worst-performing GP surgery for face-to-face appointments live in a sprawling £4million mansion and drive a fleet of luxury cars, MailOnline can reveal.
According to the latest NHS data, Bath Road Surgery in Hounslow, West London — run by father and son doctors Sunil and Akhil Mayor — held just over 15 per cent of its GP consultations in person, the lowest rate in the country.
And when MailOnline tried to book an appointment to see both Dr Mayors, even we were knocked back.
In what will be a bitter pill for their patients to swallow, Dr Sunil Mayor, 67 and his 34-year-old son live in a huge detached house on an exclusive gated private estate in Surrey.
Bath Road Surgery in Hounslow - which was placed in special measures for six months in 2015 after being rated 'inadequate' by a Care Quality Commission report - had the lowest percentage of appointments held face-to-face in the country in November, at just 15.3 per cent
The Bath Road surgery in Hounslow is run by Eton-educated Dr Akhil Mayor, 34, (pictured) who also does private work at the Cromwell Hospital and his father Dr Sunil Mayor

The luxury home — which the family bought for £527,000 in 1996 — has a galleried entrance hall, a porch with four grand stone columns and a double garage with living quarters above it.
On the pristine driveway were parked a silver Mercedes and white Range Rover.
They live on a private estate, which spans six-miles, and is popular with high-flying city execs and footballers.
MailOnline visited the doctors at their plush pile but the cleaner answered and said they were both out.
At the Bath Road Surgery, eight miles away, a receptionist explained that both doctors were not in today.
Eton-educated Dr Akhil Mayor was instead conducting private appointments at the exclusive Cromwell Hospital in central London, where he works four days a week.
When asked if he would comment about the lack of face-to-face appointments at his surgery in Hounslow, a spokesman for the Cromwell Hospital said: 'I've asked if he will talk to you but he doesn't want to. There's no comment.'
MailOnline this week compiled a definitive guide to all of England's 6,000 plus GP practices.
All the NHS data was crunched into fascinating interactive tools that enable you to search any practice in the country and find out what percentage of appointments are held face-to-face, how many patients are seen the same day they called and how satisfied they are with their GP — as well as much more.
