Pharmacy

Your local Pharmacist is able to help with most minor ailments so please speak with a Pharmacist first. Some Pharmacies stay open later than surgeries, for example Ashby Pharmacy (located on the green) and Tesco Pharmacy are open until 9pm most days (please check opening hours on their website before attending)

111

111 is free from both landlines and mobiles

If you require urgent medical assistance which cannot wait until our surgery re-opens please dial 111.

(If you do call our enquiry line outside of normal working hours (01530 270667) after 6.30 you will be asked to hang up and dial 111).

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.

Loughborough Urgent Care Centre

When to visit urgent treatment centres (urgent care services)

Urgent treatment centres provide medical help when it’s not a life threatening emergency. 

Other types of urgent care services are called minor injuries units or walk-in centres. They offer some of the same help as urgent treatment centres.

When urgent treatment centres can help instead of A&E

Urgent treatment centres are usually overseen by doctors (sometimes GPs) working with nurses.

If you need one, you can often get tests like an ECG (electrocardiogram), blood tests or an x-ray.

They can diagnose and deal with many of the most common problems people go to A&E for.

These are things like: 

  • broken bones and sprains
  • injuries, cuts and bruises
  • wound dressing
  • stomach pain 
  • coughs, colds and breathing problems
  • vomiting and diarrhoea 
  • skin infections and rashes
  • high temperature (fever) in children and adults
  • mental health problems

If a doctor decides you need a prescription, they can organise one for you. Emergency contraception is also available.

Minor injuries units and walk-in centres

These services can help with many, but not all, of the same problems as urgent treatment centres. If they cannot help with a particular problem, they will direct you to where you can get the right help.

Check if you need an urgent care service 

NHS 111 online can help if you are not sure what service you might need. If an urgent care service is not right for your problem, you will be offered alternative services

Enhanced Access Appointments Run By The PCN

In North West Leicestershire the 12 practices are working in collaboration as a Primary Care Network (PCN).

 As a PCN this allows us to work differently and provide services jointly or at scale. A great example of this was the Covid Vaccination hub that was provided from Measham Leisure Centre during 2020/21 and has left us with a successful model for future projects.

 From 1st October 2022 the PCN will be providing Enhanced Access appointments which wil include Covid vaccinations, smear tests, phlebotomy and  dressing clinics along with minor illness, respiratory illness and Clinical Pharmacist or GP appointments and these will be available to patients:-

  • Monday to Friday – 18:30 to 20:00,
  • Saturday – 09:00 to 17:00.

As a collative these appointments will be delivered from two hub locations and we will rotate between:-

  • Castle Medical Group – Ashby de la Zouch,
  • Long Lane Surgery – Coalville.

Appointments are available to book and cancel through your GP practice and you may be offered an appointment at one of these clinics when you speak with reception. If you need to speak to us about an extended access appointment and we are closed, please telephone 01530 566550, if the staff there are unable to answer your call please leave a message or email llrib-llr.nwlpcn@nhs.net. We will also be making available online booking functionality for this service in the near future. 

Please note that we will also be continuing to deliver our early morning pre booked appointments Monday to Friday from 07:30 to 08:00.
