Village Information Poster for JULY 2017

The Medical Unit is closed for staff training on Wednesday afternoon 12 July.


Summer’s here ... and it’s a great opportunity to join one of our outdoor walking groups (Tuesday or Thursday mornings). Or simply meet up with a friend and plan a short walk two or three times each week. And it’s FREE!

Care Plans

Do you feel that you or your loved one needs more support to remain as well as possible and to avoid the risk of getting into a crisis situation, which means you may result in being admitted to hospital urgently?

Working with you or your family member to produce a care plan can give you peace of mind and reduce your risk of being admitted to hospital, when it can probably be avoided.

Would you like to develop a care plan to help you or a loved one avoid a health crisis? For more information, please ask for a Care Plan Leaflet from the Reception.


First Contact Plus is an online tool which helps adults in Leicestershire find information about a range of services all in one place. The initiative allows residents who require help with one or a number of issues to access a catalogue of information, advice, help and support. Information and resources on housing, health, living independently, money advice, work, security and other topics that assist the county’s residents can be found on this site.

The Norton Village Fete will be held at Norton House Farm from noon on Saturday 8th July
We hope to see as many villagers as possible at the fete.
There will be live music, a barbecue, cream teas, coconut shy, a skittles competition, and several displays and trade stalls where you can buy a variety of products.
Gopsall ice cream will have delicious home made ice cream to help you cool down.
The fete also hosts our annual dog show, which is always very popular with dog lovers.
There will be both pedigree and novelty classes, and an overall best in show.
The show is held under kennel club regulations, and is kindly sponsored by A A Henton & Son (Stell Fabrications) Ltd.
The fete raises money to help us run and maintain our village hall, and there will also be fund raising on the day for our church and air ambulance service.
We appreciate your support and if you are new to our village it's a great way to get to know other residents better.
We look forward to seeing as many people as possible on the 8th July, and we thank the Vero family for once again allowing us to hold the fete at their farm.
The fete will run from noon until 5pm.


Village Information Poster for MAY 2017

The Medical Unit is closed for staff training on Wednesday afternoon 10 May.


Did you know ....? Some interesting figures for the month of March.

Our Doctors and Nurse Practitioners saw 4567 patients:

* 1312 of those patients were seen in our morning surgery and a further 738 as emergencies.

Our Clinic Team saw 1744 patients:

* 890 of these had blood tests and our practice nurses saw 934 patients.

* 59 children were immunised; 59 patients received antenatal care.

That’s a total of 7363 patients seen at the Unit in March.


Morning Surgery: Our morning surgery is not an emergency surgery; it is a surgery for dealing with one new acute problem that needs attention that day. It is not for ongoing or multiple problems which are much better dealt with in a booked appointment.

Summer Tea Parties: Starting next month, the Patient Participation Group will be organising a number of Summer Tea Parties in various locations in the MMU catchment area. These will give an opportunity for people to meet informally; to learn a little more of what the Practice can offer; and to find out what additional activities would be welcomed to encourage self-care.
