NHS Blood and Transplant is running the national COVID-19 convalescent plasma donor programme, and we have a donor centre in Leicester.
We urgently need plasma donations from people who’ve had coronavirus. The donations could save the lives of people who still unwell.

If you’ve had coronavirus or the symptoms, you can donate plasma for a trial which could save the lives of people who are still ill.

Due to the Coronavirus we have had to change the way we manage appointments.

All appointments are carried out via telephone or video consultation in the first instance. If the Doctor decides you need to be seen you will be given a scheduled time to attend the surgery.

If you have a general question or enquiry please register via this website with the Online Consultation software and send your question to us. Full details on the Home Page.

The latest guidance has been released and anyone entering a GP surgery MUST wear a face covering.

This does not need to be a surgical mask. You can use a scarf or a home made mask as long as your mouth and nose is covered.

Please do not attend the surgery and ask for a mask as these are for staff use only and in limited supply.

If you get regular or repeat prescriptions, you could save time by switching to electronic Repeat Dispensing (eRD).

eRD sends your prescriptions electronically from your GP surgery to a pharmacy of your choice. It’s easy to use and you don’t need a computer or electronic device. Ask your GP or pharmacist to set it up for you.

eRD allows your GP to prescribe your regular medicines for up to a year. It’s reliable, secure and confidential. Your regular prescriptions are stored securely on the NHS database, so they’ll be ready at the pharmacy each time you need them.

Using eRD you can:

• save time by avoiding unnecessary trips or calls to your GP every time you need to order a repeat prescription
• order or cancel your repeat prescriptions online (if your GP practice offers this service)
• pick up your repeat prescriptions directly from your pharmacy without having to visit your GP
• spend less time waiting for your prescription in the pharmacy or GP practice
• save paper – you won’t need a paper prescription to collect your medicine from the pharmacy

For more information about eRD and how it works, ask at your GP surgery or pharmacy, or
visit the NHS website.
