Enhanced Summary Care Record
Do you give consent to sharing important health information about you with other health care professionals and vice versa?
Most of our patients already have a summary care record, where medications and allergies can be viewed, if you choose to add additional information to this such as relevant problems, communication needs etc, this will further increase the quality of your care - Quicker access, diagnosis and treatment.
If the answer is yes - please contact the reception who can update your medical record.

Your GP, nurse or pharmacist will not generally give you a prescription for over the counter medicines for a range of minor health concerns even if you qualify for free prescriptions. Instead over the counter medicines are available to buy in a pharmacy or supermarket in your local community.

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.
