Noticeboard

General Data Protection Regulations

GPDR is a new EU law that comes into force on May 25th 2018. Please select No.1 in our further information section for our policies and information leaflets for patients

Extended Access Appointments:- We are increasing the number of appointments available for you to see a GP in the early mornings, evenings or at weekends across West Leicestershire.  Depending on your individual circumstances and symptoms, we may offer you an 'extended access' appointment.  Please note however, that these appointments will not be in your usual GP practice and may not be with one of your usual GPs or nurses.  Also if you are in agreement according to your symptoms it may be suitable to see an Advanced Nurse Practitioner, instead of a GP. The clinicians you see will be able to access relevant sections of your medical notes and will communicate what has happened during your appointment back to your usual GP practice.  These appointments will be available at the following locations:-

  • Loughborough Urgent Care Centre at Loughborough Community Hospital
  • Coalville Community Hospital
  • Hinckley and Bosworth Community Hospital.
