We politely request that all patients must wear a face mask when entering the Surgery.
COVID vaccinations update
Please be aware that recent NHS letters from mass vaccination sites such a Birmingham are an alternate option to being vaccinated through your GP surgery, not instead of. These have been sent out nationally, not by local NHS services such your GP practice or the Leicester Hospitals.
We are working hard to ensure that all our patients of 80 years of age and over and care home patients are vaccinated before moving onto other age groups. We will continue to contact patients as they become eligible.
You do not have to travel if you do not want to and the centres are designed for patients living within 30-45 minutes of a centre at most so we would recommend that you all are vaccinated closer to home during the pandemic to reduce your risk of catching the virus by using public transport. Please be aware you have to have both vaccinations at the same venue so we are not able to give patients a second vaccination if they have their first elsewhere.
Please DO NOT come to the Surgery unless requested by the practice. We are trying to keep patients as safe as we can by dealing with all queries over the phone initially and only asking patients to come to the surgery if it is necessary. We are open for all patient queries as normal between 8am - 6.30pm.

Welcome to Ratby Surgery
We are a small but hardworking family run practice, who are enthusiastic about caring for our patients. Our surgery is on Station Road in Ratby, but the practice also covers Kirby Muxloe, Groby, Leicester Forest East and the surrounding area. We also cover the new Lubbesthorpe development on the edge of Leicester City.
Our dynamic team have a variety of interests and but our main focus is the continued health of all our patients. We never use short term locum GP's to ensure you know the doctor you are seeing and that there is continuity of care for all our patients.
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.
We are aware that some neighbouring surgeries are no longer covering Ratby village, but we are happy to register patients whether they are new to the area or feel they need a GP practice closer to home. Please see our how to register page.

Your Named GP
All patients are allocated to a named GP at the practice on a rotational basis, however patients can choose to see any GP at the practice. We try to encourage and make it possible for all patients to see the same GP as we believe continuity of care is important for all our patients, especially those with long term health problems.
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.
