Repeat prescribing in Leicestershire changed in July meaning you can not get your pharmacy to order your medication except in special circumstances.

Patients are now able to refer themselves to a physiotherapist for joint and muscular problems at the University Hospitals of Leicester sites, including Glenfield Hospital. Please pick up the forms from reception if you feel you need you need this service.
Self check blood pressure machine in the waiting room
We now have a blood pressure machine in the waiting room for patient use to aid patient convenience. Please pop in to use it if you have any concerns regarding your blood pressure.

Ratby Surgery have now invested in a ramp to aid patients who use mobility scooters to access the practice. Should you wish to use it, please let reception know when you book your appointment so that we can prepare the ramp for you as it is not a permanent structure.
Monday Evening appointments after 6.30pm
We have extended our opening hours on a Monday until 8pm to offer evening appointments with Dr Ogle for any patient who finds it difficult due to work commitments to access the doctor during our normal opening hours. These appointments can be pre-booked via our reception.
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
Centre Surgery, Hinckley
If you would like to know more please speak to a member of practice staff.
