The doctors and nurses here take pride in offering the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We run many clinics for chronic disease care and offer a wide variety of other medical services such as antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
The Health Centre is fully accessible to people in wheelchairs and other disabled.
We are currently experiencing high levels of staff sickness. We are trying to cover the gaps as best we can however please bear with us if we have to re-arrange any of your appointments. Thank you.

Help West Leicestershire CCG understand the effect of potential changes to the prescribing of medicines
West Leicestershire CCG, the organisation which plans and pays for health services on behalf of residents in this area are currently undertaking a review of medicines and supplements which are available to buy cheaply over the counter and are currently also available on prescription. The CCG want to understand how people would be affected if they had to buy certain products directly from supermarkets or pharmacies, instead of requesting a prescription for them. This means we can make the best use of NHS resources and ensure we are spending our money wisely. The products and medicines currently under consideration include those also available over the counter to treat minor ailments, Vitamin D supplements and some types of infant formula. You can find the survey regarding medicines for minor ailments and Vitamin D here:- https://tinyurl.com/wlccg-counter-medicines-survey
The survey regarding infant formula can be found here: https://tinyurl.com/wlccg-infant-formula-survey You can find further information about the surveys here:- http://www.westleicestershireccg.nhs.uk/medicine
All Surveys close on August 4th 2017.
