CPCS

Charnwood GP Practice is participating in a new approach to improve access to medical care for patients. 

This service will ensure that patients get the care that they need swiftly and will direct patients to the most appropriate healthcare professional according to their healthcare need.

From 22nd November 2021, if it is likely that your symptoms or condition can be resolved through a consultation with the Pharmacist rather than a GP, you may be referred to the Community Pharmacist Consultation Service. 

What are the benefits to patients?

1) Reduced waiting times: 

You will be given a same-day referral to any participating pharmacy of your choice. This will allow you to speak with a minor illness specialist and receive expert advice and treatment. 

2) Flexible and convenient appointments: 

You can select a pharmacy that is most convenient for you to attend if you need to have a face-to-face consultation. Alternatively, consultations can take place remotely via telephone or video call. 

3) Appropriate treatment and signposting: 

You can be offered clinical advice and treatment, signposting or escalation to another healthcare provider when needed (such as 999, A&E, Urgent Treatment Centre, or your own GP). 

4) Improved availability of GP appointments for complex health needs:

The service will free up GP appointments for patients with more complex health needs and ensure that everyone gets treated at the right time, but the right healthcare professional.

Third doses of the COVID-19 vaccine for people with suppressed immune systems

People aged 12 and over and who had severely weakened immune systems at the time of their first or second doses of the Covid vaccine are eligible to receive a third dose. They may not have generated a full immune response to the first two doses and therefore may be less protected than the wider population.

Click on the button below to see the full list of health conditions which might mean you have had a suppressed immune system 

Check the full list of conditions

Clinics for the third dose are being held at Loughborough Hospital and the Peepul Centre. You will be contacted to book you in for your vaccination; there is no need to contact the practice.

This third dose is part of the primary course of vaccinations. It is not the same as a booster dose, which is given later to extend the duration of protection after the primary course of vaccinations.

Vaccinations for children aged 12-15 who are at increased risk from Covid-19

Children who are classed as clinically extremely vulnerable to Covid-19, or who live with someone who is more likely to get infections, can now get their Covid vaccine. Two doses of the vaccine will be given.

Your child can receive their vaccination at a dedicated clinic at either Loughborough Hospital or the Peepul Centre. You will be contacted to book your child in for their vaccination; there is no need to contact the practice.
