Healthcare hubs

Open evenings, weekends and bank holidays

If you need an appointment and your GP practice does not have anything available, they may book an appointment for you at a healthcare hub instead, if an appointment is suitable for your particular medical problem. You can find out more about our healthcare hubs within our new You and Your GP practice section.

The healthcare hubs are an integral part of the service provided by Leicester City GP practices to improve access to appointments.

There are four healthcare hubs in Leicester, offering convenient appointments during the day, in the evenings, at weekends and on bank holidays.

When your practice is closed, call NHS 111 for advice. By calling NHS 111 it does not guarantee that you will get an appointment at the hub, alternative advice or treatment might be better for you.

From 1st August 2019, appointments at the healthcare hubs can only be booked by GP practices, during practice opening hours of 8am to 6:30pm Mon-Fri. When your practice is closed, call NHS 111 for advice.

An appointment at a hub is not suitable in all cases. It is important that you tell the receptionist why you need an appointment so that it is booked in the right location and so you don’t have a wasted journey. For example, the hubs will not be able to issues an extension to a fit note.

You can still see a GP or prescribing nurse, just as you would with your usual GP practice, and the hubs are open during the evenings, weekends and bank holidays.
