Useful Information
  • Pharmacy News

    Your local pharmacy will be able to give you free health advice and you do not need an appointment. Stop smoking clinics are also held at your local pharmacy and they offer free advice and support to help you quit. Many pharmacies operate extended hours on a rota basis.

  • Surgery Charges

    Please note that there is a charge for letters/reports/medical questionnaires etc, that are completed by the GP. A list of charges is available by calling the Surgery on 01509 601201.

  • Dental Problems

    Doctors are not trained to deal with dental problems. Dentists do not work at Minor Injury Units, Loughborough Walk-In Centre or the Accident and Emergency Departments.

    If you have any problems with you teeth or gums (such as toothache, or an abcess in your mouth, especially if you have a swelling around the tooth) you must contact your dentist during normal opening hours.

    To access emergency dental advice outside of opening hours, please call NHS Choices on 111

  • Your Choice - Choose and Book

    The Practice books Hospital Appointments on your behalf, using the NHS Choose and Book system. This is an online booking system which enables the Practice or the Patient to book their appointment. If the Practice books an appointment on your behalf, we will always try to book the closest hospital, with the shortest waiting list.

  • GP Salaries

    All GP Practices are required to declare mean earnings (i.e. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice. The average pay for GP's working in the practice of GP Dr Ghatora in the last financial year was 27,463 before tax and NI. This is for 1 full time GP and 1 locum GP who worked for the practice for more than six months.
