Extended Access

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

Hinckley and Bosworth Community Hospital

If you would like to know more please speak to a member of practice staff.

Practice Receive Diabetes UK Champion Award

The Healthier You: NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme (NHS DPP) will identify those at high risk and refer them onto a behaviour change programme.

The NHS DPP is a joint commitment from NHS England, Public Health England and Diabetes UK.

Those referred will get tailored, personalised help to reduce their risk of Type 2 diabetes including education on healthy eating and lifestyle, help to lose weight and bespoke physical exercise programmes, all of which together have been proven to reduce the risk of developing the disease.

Mahavir Medical Centre have been awarded with a "Practice Champion" certificate in recognition of their many referrals to this invaluable program.

 Champion Award Certificate Diabetes

“As a surgery we’ve all worked extremely hard to refer as many patients onto the programme as possible. It’s such a worthwhile initiative that we are proud to be a part of it and want to continue helping the patients who are at high risk of developing the condition. We plan to continue referring and encouraging everyone to take part, as we want to help drive down the number of type 2 diagnosis figures in West Leicestershire.” Dr T. Darji.
