Market Harborough Medical Centre
The doctors and staff at Market Harborough Medical Centre are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare.We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
Market Harborough Medical Centre has taken on the care of the 3,900 patients registered at the Husbands Bosworth Surgery. Dr Crowley and Dr Delargy will be spending half of their time at that surgery until March 2013. Dr Harrison will be helping them with their clinics at Market Harborough Medical Centre for the next few months.
We have been experiencing some problems with our new phone system over the past few weeks, in particular the "Auto Attendant" call distribution software. Our telephone supplier is currently endeavouring to address the issue.
We apologise for any delays that our patients may have experienced and hope that the issues will be resolved soon.
Reminder To All Patients: Please call in/telephone the Medical Centre after 2.00pm for any blood/smear results that you may have had undertaken. Remember your health is your responsibility so follow up your results.
As you are aware appointments are at 10 minute intervals and we endeavour to deal with your problems as thoroughly as we can bearing this in mind. We would be most grateful if you would consider this when looking at the number of issues that you need to bring to the consultation.
If you feel that you cannot discuss all your issues please bring it to the attention of your GP.
Patient Participation Group
We are keen to encourage our patients to make a positive contribution to the services and facilities offered at the Market Harborough Medical Centre and have set up a Patient Participation Group (PPG).
The group currently consists of 16 patients from different diverse patient groups. We would particularly like younger people and/or teenagers to join the group. The idea is to work with the medical, nursing and other support staff within the practice to raise any ideas and issues and to help patients take more responsibility for their own health.
Currently the Patient Participation Group meets monthly. A PPG Notice Board will be situated in the surgery waiting area, which will include details of PPG activities, leaflets on common conditions, and health promotion events, also a box for any suggestions/ideas patients would like the PPG to raise at the next meeting. Alternatively, please complete the Comments and Suggestions form by clicking on icon below.
If you are interested in joining this Group please click on Practice News below.

We have a very limited number of parking spaces, which are restricted for use by staff and the short-term use of the disabled and those whose illness prevents them from walking far. Please park responsibly allowing access for ambulances and for the doctors to leave quickly to attend emergencies. Parking is available at the nearby Commons car park.
