Thank you for your cooperation.
If you’re a patient at our practice you can now use the new NHS App, a simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services on your smartphone or tablet.
You can use the NHS App to check your symptoms and get instant advice, book appointments, order repeat prescriptions, view your GP medical record and more.
If you already use The Charnwood Practice online service available at practice you can continue to use it. You can use the NHS App as well.
For more information go to www.nhs.uk/nhsapp or speak to our administration team for assistance.
The musculoskeletal conditions self-management app has been developed to support patients by providing clear, accessible information about common MSK conditions, advice on how to manage an injury, along with exercise videos and links to useful websites to help with self-management. It also provides information on how to self-refer into MSK Physiotherapy and Podiatry services.
Leicester City healthcare Hub Information
Appointments at the healthcare hubs can only be booked by your GP practice, or NHS111 when your practice is closed. An appointment at a hub is not suitable in all cases. It is important that you tell the receptionist why you need an appointment so that it is booked in the right location and so you don’t have a wasted journey. For example, the hubs will not be able to issue an extension to a fit note.
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
Get Well, Keep Well
Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.
We hope you enjoy having a look around the site and familiarising yourself with some of the online features such as ordering a repeat prescription. Whatever your thoughts, be sure to let us know via our feedback function. Comments and suggestions are always a great way of helping us continue to enhance the way we look after you.
Access & Parking
The building has been designed to provide suitable access for all disabled patients. If you need more information or assistance please ask at reception.
We have a car parking facility which has disabled car parking spaces. However, occasionally, when the practice is busy, it may be necessary to park on the road.
