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:

Loughborough Urgent Care Centre at Loughborough Community Hospital

Coalville Community Hospital

Hinckley and Bosworth Community Hospital

If you would like to know more please speak to a member of practice staff.

In 2018, Greengate Medical Centre  moved to a new clinical computer system called SystmOne. This will ultimately bring additional benefits to both the practice and patients, however it is taking everyone more time to get used to it.

Prescriptions are taking us longer to process at the moment, and we are doing our best to deal with these as quickly as possible, and we hope the prescribing should improve in the coming weeks.

In the meantime please leave at least 5 working days between pacing an order and collecting the script.

On-line access

Due to the move to a new clinical system, if you had on-line access for booking appointments and/or ordering repeat medications, you will now have to re-register for this.
Please come to the surgery and ask at reception for a form to complete - also bring with you a photo id (passport/driving license etc) and a utility bill.

Thank you 

Friends and Family Survey

Would you please complete the 2 question "Friends and Family Test" which is located under the "Have your say" section.

This will give us up-to-date information on how we are doing.
