Local people to have access to top consultants at Uppingham surgery

An Uppingham GP surgery has teamed up with a Leicester hospital to enable patients in the area to see consultants without having to travel into the city.

From Monday 10th May, consultants from Nuffield Health Leicester Hospital will be holding outpatient consultations at Uppingham Surgery.

Consultants from a range of specialities will be available including ENT, Orthopaedics, Plastic surgery and Gynaecology. An independent Ophthalmologist will also be available. Those private patients referred by their GPs will be able to see the consultants for their outpatient appointments.

Andrew Davey, General Manager of the Nuffield Health Leicester Hospital says: “We’re really excited by the opportunity to team up with Uppingham Surgery in this way.

We want to make it as convenient as possible for people to see their consultants. This way, patients are able to get the advice they need without having to travel all the way into Leicester, except for surgery if they need it. We think that this service will make a real difference to local patients.”
