***** Appointments Wasted *****
In March 2018 96% of patients attended their appointment for the GP, nurse or phlebotomy.
20 patients did not attend their GP, nurse or phlebotomy appointment which resulted in a total of 4 hours of clinical time that was wasted (2 hours of GP time and 2 hours of nurse/HCA time). It's easy to cancel or re-arrange 01162375089 or register to use online services to make and cancel appointments and/or order repeat medication.

***** Self Care *****
The West Leicestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) developed proposals, which have now been agreed by the CCG Board in September, which asks GPs to stop prescribing medicines for minor conditions. GPs are instead asked to advise patients to see their pharmacist in the first instance for advice on minor conditions that they feel could be treated quickly by an over the counter medicine.
***** Minor Injuries Service *****
We provide a minor injury service here at the surgery for injuries that are not life threatening, for example abrasions, bruises, sprains or minor trauma to hands, limbs or feet. Please see our 'latest news' section of right hand side for more information.
