If you have been referred to the hospital the following websites provide the indicative waiting times for out-patient appointments.

My Planned Care gives you advice and support while you wait and helps you to prepare for your hospital consultation, treatment, or surgery. This includes giving you information about waiting times at your hospital and other supporting and local services while you wait.

This site is updated weekly and can be viewed by anyone, which means you, your family or carer as well as your NHS team can all see the latest information.

Your hospital team will be in touch with you as soon as they can. If you are looking for an update, please check this website before contacting your hospital or GP.

This week, NHS Leicester, Leicestershire, and Rutland has launched a new campaign called Get in the Know, to support local people to get the right care as quickly as possible, by raising awareness of the services to use when they are unwell or injured.

The campaign features a single website,, where people can learn or ‘get in the know’ about local health services, either at the time or in advance.

Over several weeks they will be introducing the individual themes under the ‘Get in the Know’ series to raise awareness in small steps. These include, using GP practices, treating minor ailments and urgent care. The first theme, mental health services, will start next week.

Visit to learn more.


As part of the City Care Alliance PCN we are now offering routine appointments with various healthcare professionals between 18:30 – 20:00 Monday to Friday and 09:00 – 17:00 Saturdays.

Clinics will be held at Merridale Medical Centre Monday – Thursday and at Fosse Family Practice Friday and Saturday.

Appointments can be booked through reception only.

There will NO LONGER be any late openings at the practice.


The Practice now employs a variety of healthcare professionals which means you may be booked in with them, rather than a GP.

The reception staff will ask you some questions to be able to confirm who is the most appropriate member of the team to book you with. The aim is to free up GP appointments for patients who genuinely need to see a GP.

We are not refusing you an appointment with a GP so please be polite and courteous to the staff at all times.

For more information on the staff we employ please visit our Meet the Team Page 



If you get regular or repeat prescriptions, you could save time by switching to electronic Repeat Dispensing (eRD).

eRD sends your prescriptions electronically from your GP surgery to a pharmacy of your choice. It’s easy to use and you don’t need a computer or electronic device. Ask your GP or pharmacist to set it up for you.

eRD allows your GP to prescribe your regular medicines for up to a year. It’s reliable, secure and confidential. Your regular prescriptions are stored securely on the NHS database, so they’ll be ready at the pharmacy each time you need them.

Using eRD you can:

• save time by avoiding unnecessary trips or calls to your GP every time you need to order a repeat prescription
• order or cancel your repeat prescriptions online (if your GP practice offers this service)
• pick up your repeat prescriptions directly from your pharmacy without having to visit your GP
• spend less time waiting for your prescription in the pharmacy or GP practice
• save paper – you won’t need a paper prescription to collect your medicine from the pharmacy

For more information about eRD and how it works, ask at your GP surgery or pharmacy, or
visit the NHS website.
