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.

Advance Care Planning

Deciding Right - Planning your care in advance

Planning your care in advance involves a process of discussion between you and the people who provide care for you eg your doctors, nurses, social worker, family and friends.

Taking part in this process gives you the opportunity to express some views, preferences and wishes about your future care so that they can be taken into account if you were unable to make your own decisions at some point in the future.

The advance care planning involves:

1.  Opening the discussion

2.  Exploring your options

3.  Identifying your wishes and preferences

4.  Refusing specific treatment

5.  Identifying who you would like to be consulted on your behalf

6.  Letting people know your wishes

Please make an appointment to see your GP if you would like to discuss this further.The following websites have some useful information:
