Welcome to Field Street Surgery.
Changes due to Covid-19
We are doing telephone triage appointments only. If there is a problem that needs a face to face appointment the GP will ask you to come in.
This also means there will be no face to face appointments available to be booked online.
The nurses are still doing blood tests, B12, cancer injections and smears.
The waiting room is set out for safe social distancing, well ventilated with hand sanitiser and face masks for your safety.
The clinicians are wearing PPE for their protection and yours.
We ask you not to attend the surgery if you have any Covid-19 symptoms and to come at your appointment time so there are few patients in the waiting area.
Thank you for your co-operation during this time.

We have a patient list of more than 2,400, covering Shepshed and surrounding villages including Belton, Hathern and Long Whatton. If you are unsure whether we cover your village, please contact us.
We value core values. Our core values as a practice are to treat our patients with care, kindness and respect in a relaxed, friendly environment. Our aim is to deliver a high level of patient centred care.
Please read all about the surgery and if the answer you need is not here, then please contact us.
The NHS are sending out letters to:
people aged 80 and over
people who live or work in care homes
health and social care workers at high risk
To have an injection it appears the areas are not local but Birmingham and Telford. We at the surgery understand this is a long way to travel but advise you to keep checking the website for something nearer to home.
The central hub is at Charnwood Borough Council Offices in Loughborough. The appointments available there are taken very quickly as they are being used by all Loughborough and Shepshed GP practices.
Please do not call the surgery expecting us to make you an appointment straight away because as stated above the appointments are currently few and far between.
If we are able to make you one it will be short notice and unfortunately no choice as to the date

Please let us know if you are a carer so we can update the system.
We have information in the surgery and on notice boards
You can now contact the surgery online to tell us about you non emergency medical problem. Using online consultations allows us to quickly and safely decide on the best way to help you.
We are looking to increase the membership of our Patient Participation Group (PPG).
The PPG is made up of volunteers and our Practice Manager to help strengthen the relationship between the practice and you, our patients. Your PPG contributes ideas, feedback and suggestions to improve patient experience. We would stress it is not the role of the PPG to deal with complaints against staff as this is covered by the NHS complaints procedures.
Would you like to have a meaningful input into improving the services you receive at your surgery? By joining the PPG, you will have a direct voice to influence decisions made by the surgery about patient services. If you are interested in finding out more information or joining the PPG, please contact our reception staff.
The PPG is open to all patients of Field Street Surgery. The group meets bi- monthly, so if you are willing to join the PPG, you would be made very welcome.
