Our core opening hours are:
Monday - Friday 8am - 6.30pm.
The practice operates 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.
Where a medical problem cannot be dealt with remotely, you will be offered a face to face appointment.
As a GP training practice, we may ask if you are happy for a medical student to be present during your appointment, or if you can be seen by a medical student in the first instance and reviewed by a Doctor following the students clinical assessment.
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, or email us at:
Alternatively you can 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 continue to keep unneccesary attendance to the surgery at a minimum to protect vulnerable patients 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.

We have vaccinated all of our care home patients with both their 1st and 2nd dose of vaccination.
All of our housebound patients have received a 1st vaccine, and will be re-visited when their 2nd doses become due.
Please rest assured that you will be contacted directly when your age and/or at risk group becomes eligible and vaccines are available to us.
Where possible you will be contacted by telephone or text message, therefore please ensure that we have your up to date contact details recorded on your medical records.
PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU WILL NEED TO ARRANGE YOUR 2ND VACCINE THROUGH THE SAME PROVIDER THAT YOU BOOKED YOUR 1ST DOSE WITH.
MASS VACCINATION CENTRE APPOINTMENTS ARE BOOKED THROUGH THE NHS WEBSITE OR 119. THIS IS NOT A SERVICE OR SYSTEM THAT WE HAVE ACCESS TO.
