When We Are Closed
In the event of a medical emergency call the NHS 111 between 18:30 pm and 08:00 am Weekdays, any time at the weekend and throughout Bank Holidays.
It's a free call even from a mobile.
At all other times please call us on 0116 215 1105.
If you are registered as a patient of this practice, you can also get an appointment with a GP or prescribing nurse at one of our healthcare hubs, including during evenings, weekends and bank holidays:
- Westcotes Health Centre (8am to 8pm, 7 days a week)

- Saffron Health (Mon – Fri 6:30pm to 10pm, weekends and bank holidays 12pm to 8pm)
If we have been unable to offer you an appointment and you need to see someone quickly, ask our reception staff about an appointment at a healthcare hub instead.
You can also book the appointment yourself by calling 0116 366 0560 or NHS 111. Appointments can be booked for the same day or up to 48 hours in advance.
