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.
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.
New Doctor - Dr David Findlay
Patients previously registered with Dr Sonia Rai, who went on maternity leave in December 2012 and has now returned to the medical centre to work, but on a part time basis, your registration has been transferred to Dr David Findlay who works full time.
Dr Findlay graduated as a Doctor in 2008 from the Univerity of Leicester Medical School and qualified thereafter as a GP in 2013 having completed the last year of his GP training at Market Harborough Medical Centre. He knows the practice and has a good knowledge of local health services.
We very much hope that you will have a positive therapeutic relationship with Dr Findlay and ask that you give that relationship a minimum of six months to develop. If, however, after that time you wish to change GP, then you can do so. Three of our GPs are always open to take new patients and you will be able to register with any of them. The three GPs at the Medical Centre who are taking on new patients change each month.

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.
