Changes to prescribing at this surgery 

We are promoting the use of over the counter medication for selfcare as an alternative to prescribing by your GP. This is because they are available to buy in pharmacies and supermarkets at a much lower cost. Please do not be offended if we ask you to buy these medicines. There are exemptions to these changes - for more information please visit  NHS East Leicestershire and Rutland Clinical Commissioning Group : eastleicestershireandrutlandccg.nhs.uk

The medications include:    Cough mixtures, Coldsore treatment, Colic drops, Paracetamol and Ibuprofen for simple short term conditions, Antifungal nail treatment, Antacids for indigestion, Antihistamines for hayfever, Medicated shampoo, Sunscreen, Mouthwash and mouth ulcer treatment,Creams, gels and rubs for muscular discomfort, Travel vaccinations, Herbal remedies

It costs the NHS approximately three times more to prescribe these medicines than it does to buy them over the counter.

This is your NHS - please use it wisely.

New Patient Questionnaire

If you do not live in our practice area you may still be able to register with us

From January 2015, GP Practices in England are free to register new patients who live outside their practice boundary area. This means that patients can register with practices in more convenient locations, for example closer to where you work or closer to your children's schools. We will decide following a review of your completed registrations from, whether to accept you as a regular patient, or accept you without home visiting duties. Please speak to reception for further details.


Temporary Patients

UK residents staying in the practice area for only a short time can register with the practice on a temporary basis, and be seen in the same way as other patients.

Visitors from overseas can also be seen at the practice. Please note, however, that treatment on the NHS is only available for emergency treatment of overseas residents.

Treatment for an existing medical problem can be provided privately, which means there will be a charge for any consultations and treatment. A receipt will be issued, as the visitor may wish to claim the cost back on their travel insurance.
