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.
Depending on the reason for your appointment, and if you are in agreement, it may be suitable for you to see an Advanced Nurse Practitioner, instead of a GP. The clinician 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:
Roseberry Medical Centre, Loughborough
Coalville Community Hospital
Hinckley and Bosworth Community Hospital
WE CAN NOW ALSO OFFER YOU A TELEPHONE APPOINTMENT ON MONDAY, TUESDAY AND THURSDAY EVENINGS BETWEEN 6.30PM AND 8.00PM
If you would like to know more please speak to a member of practice staff.
