Views invited on the new Blaby district urgent care centre location

NHS East Leicestershire and Rutland Clinical Commissioning Group is planning to open a new urgent care centre in the Blaby district area.

Urgent care centres treat patients for injuries and illnesses that require immediate attention, but are not life-threatening and people will be treated by an experienced nurse for a range of minor illnesses and injuries including cuts and bruises, stomach upsets, burns and strains.

The centre will offer walk in services and appointments when GP practices are closed on weekday evenings, at weekends and on bank holidays. The centre is planned to open in April 2019.

After listening the views of local people over the summer on what is important to them about the location of a new service, we are now seeking views on which one of two existing buildings at which to locate the centre. We welcome your feedback and would appreciate your support in promoting to your local contacts the opportunity for people to share their views.

Full details of our proposals and survey can be found on our website. The survey will close at 11:45pm on Tuesday 27 November 2018.

We will be out and about with our listening booth over the coming weeks and we encourage people to come along and talk to us to share their views. We will be visiting:

  • Monday 05 November 2018, 10am-12pm at Countesthorpe Health Centre
