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.

Our patient participation group (PPG) meet every 2 months and the next meeting is always displayed on the front page.

The chair of our group is Mrs Tina Wright and Secretary is Cathy Buss.  We are always looking for new members especially from the younger generation.  If you are interested in joining our PPG please leave your name and contact deals with reception or email us through this website in contact details.

Our PPG actively takes part in the Locality Patient Participation Group which consists of members from the surrounding practices.  There meetings are quarterly where they discuss events and activities for all the patients in South Charnwood alongside South Charnwood Federation who are supporting practices to keep services local to the practices by commissioning services nearer to home.

Our chair Tina and the surgery practice manager also attend the quarterly Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) network meetings held at the NSPCC building in Beaumont Leys where the CCG inform the patient groups of any areas of any changes, improvements or implementation the CCG are leading on that will effect patients in West Leicestershire.

Our PPG have a notice board in the waiting room which is updated regularly with relevant health events and promotions to help patients manage their illnesses.
