Ordering repeat medication and booking appointments online

Would you like to order your repeat medication or pre-book telephone appointments online?

If the answer is yes we can help.

We’re holding a number of drop-in sessions where patients can come and register for our online services, and then we’ll be on hand to show you how to log on if you’d like us to.  Please bring two forms of ID to the sessions, one must be photo ID such as a driving licence or passport and the other should be proof of address dated within the last 3 months.

The sessions are taking place at our Ibstock surgery on:

Tuesday 19th February

10am until 12.30pm  and 2.30pm until 3.30pm

Wednesday 20th February

10am until 12.30pm and 2.30pm until 3.30pm

Monday 25th February

3.30pm until 4.30pm

If you’re interested in having this service but can’t make one of these sessions, please email us on ibstock.house@nhs.net and we’ll send you the forms so you can register.

Have you recently moved to the area and not yet registered with us?

Please register with us as soon as you can and before you need to use our services. This makes it much easier and quicker for us both when you need an appointment.  Our patient registration forms can be downloaded from our website: www.ibstockhousesurgery.nhs.uk.  Alternatively pop in and see us at one of the sessions above and we can get the forms filled in there and then.

Evening and Weekend GP Appointments

There are now 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, our GPs may offer you an ‘extended access’ appointment. Please note however, that these appointments will not be in your usual GP practice and are unlikely to be with one of our GPs or nurses.

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.

If you would like more information please see the West Leicestershire CCG website: https://www.westleicestershireccg.nhs.uk/latest-news/268-extended-access-appointments

Active Signposting by Reception

We have made an agreement between our two surgeries and the local chemists. Now when a patient calls the surgery for an appointment, the receptionist will ask for the patient’s symptoms as usual but if the patient is showing symptoms of an ailment that can be dealt with by the pharmacist, the receptionist will ask the patient to contact the chemist for help.

The list of ailments has been agreed between the doctors and the local pharmacists. By doing this we hope to ensure that patients are dealt with by the correct person first time, thus benefitting patients.

Frequently Asked Questions

We are regularly asked the same questions by patients about how are surgery works. So we've put together a document answering as many of these questions as we can.  To download the document or read the answers please go to our Frequently Asked Questions page.
