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.

Patient Participation Group

We are keen to encourage our patients to make a positive contribution to the services and facilities offered at the Market Harborough Medical Centre and have set up a Patient Participation Group (PPG).

The group currently consists of 10 patients from different diverse patient groups.  We would particularly like younger people and/or teenagers to join the group. The idea is to work with the medical, nursing and other support staff within the practice to raise any ideas and issues and to help patients take more responsibility for their own health.

Currently the Patient Participation Group meets bi-monthly. A PPG Notice Board is situated in the surgery waiting area, which will include details of PPG activities and minutes of PPG Meetings.

The Patient Participation Group held their  AGM on March 21st 2017 at St Dionysius Community Hall, Coventry Road, Market Harborough and the following officers were elected:  Mike Cheeseman (Chairman), Barbara Johnson (Vice Chair), Natalie Pollard (Secretary).  The Guest Speaker at this years event was James Watkins of The GP Federation who gave a presentation regarding the work of The GP Federation..
