Changes at Stoney Stanton Surgery

Improvements planned for patients at The Old School Surgery

The following statement has been provided by Stoney Stanton surgery to keep patients informed of impending changes.

For patients who are registered at The Old School Surgery in Stoney Stanton you will know that we provide services from our main building on Hinckley Road as well as a building that we refer to as Greencroft Annexe which is located on Carey Hill Road.

The team at The Old School Surgery has been reviewing the annexe building and whilst it has served our patients and staff well for a number of years we feel that we need to make some improvements so that we can enhance the quality of care we provide to our patients.

Unfortunately the annexe building is no longer fit for purpose. Access is very difficult via a path which is steep and can be slippery and unsafe for our vulnerable patients and pregnant ladies. It is also very isolated and has limited public lighting. The building itself is suffering from damp and is in need of major repairs.

The services that have been run from Greencroft Annexe include physiotherapy, counselling, health visitors, midwives and phlembotomy and INRs (a measurement of blood coagulation).

From the 1 February 2018 patients will see some changes and improvements to the environment in which they receive their care.

The phlembotomy /INR service will be run from our main surgery on Hinckley Road. Our Midwifery service will also be based in the main surgery enabling us to increase the number of appointments we provide. It will also mean that the easy access to our doctors will be really beneficial to our mums.

The Physiotherapist Service provided by Leicestershire Partnership Trust who are looking to streamline their services, but are committed to still providing this service in Hinckley.

The Health Visiting Service will also still be provided locally using the Living Rock Church as well as making home visits.

The counselling service call 'Lets' Talk Wellbeing' are centralising their service, but referrals from our GPs, if appropriate, will still be made and self-referrals are also possible by calling 0115 876 0157 or visiting https://www.nottinghamshirehealthcare.nhs.uk/leicestershire-county-and-rutland-service-

The team at The Old School Surgery is really excited about these improvements. We will be making the best use of our available space and providing services in a much improved setting which is safe, has much better parking facilities and has a doctor on site at all times.
