Your GP practice is open: but you will notice some differences

 Along with all GP Practices in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, we are delivering the covid vaccination programme.  This is the biggest immunisation programme in the history of the NHS in response to one of the most serious challenges to public health the world has faced.  This vital work will prevent thousands of people suffering serious illness or hospitalisation. We are proud to be involved in this essential work.

 We also know that our patients continue to need our help with all the usual health care needs they have.  So, although we are very busy we remain open to provide the care you need.  It's important to:

  • get medical help if you think you need it
  • keep any appointments or procedures you have booked – unless you’re told not to go
  • go to hospital if you’re advised to

 However, during this busy time and with Covid still a significant threat to people’s health we ask for your ongoing co-operation and understanding to help us help you.   This means:

 We may have to rearrange appointments or clinics, sometimes at short notice;

To prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) there have been changes to GP appointments. But it's still important to get help from us if you need it. You can contact your GP surgery by:

You can also order repeat prescriptions online.

You will only be asked to visit the surgery if absolutely necessary. We will advise you about what to do. A phone or video call with a GP, nurse or other healthcare professional may be booked for you. We will discuss the best option with you.

Reception staff may ask you a few questions about your condition to make sure you get the right care you need. They will never make a clinical decision about whether you need see a doctor but will be able to advise you about what the alternatives are if appropriate.
