Our core opening hours are Monday - Friday 8am - 6.30pm. We are currently operating a triage system for patients who need to speak to a clinician. Please call at 8am to be added to our on the day triage list.
We continue to offer appointments for ALL screening and immunisation services as well as chronic disease reviews for patients that can safely attend the practice (if not shielding, isolating or symptomatic of covid-19).
Where a medical problem cannot be dealt with remotely, you will be offered a face to face appointment.
If you have any symptoms of covid-19 or are isolating as you or a close contact has tested positive and find that you require medical assistance, you will not be able to attend the surgery but may be offered an appointment at the hot hub in Loughborough by speaking to one of our clinicians on the telephone. The hot hub is a designated site for patients to be seen safely with all the necessary controlled measures in place to protect against risk of further infection.
If you have a query please do not attend the surgery but instead call us on 01509 274430, email us to: email@example.com or use the ask us a question tab, located below on this page.
We regularly post updates on our facebook page which you can access towards the bottom of this page.
We must keep unneccesary attendance to the surgery at a minimum to protect vulnerable patients that must access our services and to keep our staff as safe as possible.
Please always sanitise on entry and exit of the building and ensure that you wear a face mask when on site that covers your nose and mouth.
Thank you for your continued support.
Influenza Vaccination for the 50-64s & Corona Virus Vaccination
OVER 50's FLU VACCINATION
We are delighted to have received a large response to the flu vaccination which has been made available for patients aged between 50 and 64 this year.
Please contact the surgery on 01509 274430 and let our team know if you would like to be vaccinated, so that we can inform you of the next available slot.
We are thrilled to be working in collaboration with 20 other practices in Charnwood, all of whom are vaccinating their patients at The Charnwood Borough Council Offices on Southfield Road in Loughborough.
It will take time to vaccinate each cohort of patients as we are restricted by the amount of vaccines that are available to us at the moment, although we anticipate distribution to speed up in the coming weeks.
We have currently contacted all patients who are in groups 1 - 4 this is:
1. Patients over 80
2. Frontline healthcare workers
3. Patients over 70
4. Clinically Extremely Vulnerable Patients
If you are in the above groups and have not yet scheduled a vaccination, please now contact us, as we will have been unsuccessful in contacting you.
We have vaccinated all of our care home patients and the majority of our housebound patients. Any remaining housebound patients will be vaccinated as soon as possible, and will be contacted when we have confirmed vaccine allocation.
Please do not call the surgery regarding the covid-19 vaccination, unless we have sent you a text or email asking you to call us; This may be because we have tried to reach you unsuccessfully.
Rest assured that you will be contacted directly when your age and/or at risk group becomes eligible and vaccines are available to us.
You may be contacted by phone or letter.
We are vaccinating in the surgery when vaccine allocation allows and in the week ending 19th February have completed 483 vaccines in house, to suppliment the work being carried out at our local hub.
To date (19th Feb) Barrow Health Centre has booked, vaccinated or received confirmation of a decline to vaccinate: 92% of patients in groups 1-6, which exceeds the expectation for this point in time, and we are delighted to be able to share this information with you.
Group 5 is patients aged 65-69.
Group 6 is patients aged 16-64 with an underlying health condition or a carer.
If you are in group 5 you can make an appointment here: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/
If you are in group 6 please call the surgery and if there are no appointments available, you will be added to our waiting list and contacted as soon as there is availability.
You may receive an NHS letter offering you appointments at sites such as East Goscote or Leicester, if you are able to travel to these sites and can book an appointment, you do not have to wait for a local appointment. However you will be offered a local appointment if you would prefer to wait for availability. If we contact you and you have booked elsewhere please do not worry, we will update your medical records and will be informed once you have been vaccinated.
In total 2736 of our patients have now been vaccinated with a further approx. 200 patients booked in to be vaccinated at our local hub in the coming days. (As of 19th Feb 2021)
Thank you for your continued patience and understanding in this challenging time.
Take care and stay safe.
