Latest news

New Hernia service

A new county-wide specialist community hernia service will roll out fully this week for all patients registered with a GP practice in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. 

This service has been commissioned by Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Provider Company Limited to reduce waiting times for patients and reduce the risk of patients operations being cancelled on or before the day of surgery and therefore improving patient experience. 

Patients will be seen in local GP practices in Leicester City at the County Practice in Syston, the Merlyn Vaz Health Centre and from Leicestershire from the Castle Medical Group in Ashby de la Zouche and Heath Lane Surgery in Earl Shilton with surgery being delivered from an upgraded surgical theatre space at the County Practice in Syston.

To find out more about opportunities with Independent Health Group or to request more details about the new hernia service please contact us on 0333 0100 362
