Changes to prescribing at this surgery 

We are promoting the use of over the counter medication for selfcare as an alternative to prescribing by your GP. This is because they are available to buy in pharmacies and supermarkets at a much lower cost. Please do not be offended if we ask you to buy these medicines. There are exemptions to these changes - for more information please visit  NHS East Leicestershire and Rutland Clinical Commissioning Group : eastleicestershireandrutlandccg.nhs.uk

The medications include:    Cough mixtures, Coldsore treatment, Colic drops, Paracetamol and Ibuprofen for simple short term conditions, Antifungal nail treatment, Antacids for indigestion, Antihistamines for hayfever, Medicated shampoo, Sunscreen, Mouthwash and mouth ulcer treatment,Creams, gels and rubs for muscular discomfort, Travel vaccinations, Herbal remedies

It costs the NHS approximately three times more to prescribe these medicines than it does to buy them over the counter.

This is your NHS - please use it wisely.

Practice Fees

Reasons for Charging Fees

  • It is important to know that many GP services are not covered by the National Health, GPs are self-employed and have to cover the costs of their staff and building in the same way as any small business.
  • Consequently all Practices will charge for the services they offer which are not covered by the NHS contract, including private medicals for HGV and insurances, etc.
  • In the case of the Market Harborough & Bosworth Surgeries the income earned from private services is ploughed back into the Practice and not taken as private income thus allowing for additional nurses, medical services, administrative cover or equipment purchase. 
  • GPs do not have to carry out Non-NHS work on behalf of their patients but our Partners do so although patients are also free to attend any surgery for private medical work.
  • We believe that our rates are competitive within the local area although all practices charge differing rates based on the British Medical Association guidance and recommendations.
  • While GP's endeavour to  complete requests within 10 working days, clinical work must take priority.
