The practice has ample car parking facilities which includes disabled car parking spaces on one of our two car parks, a large waiting area, a seperate area with a booksale and areas to leave pushchairs and a chemist attached to the surgery. We have 2 GPs who are partners at the practice, 1 Salaried GP and regular locums. We also have 2 nurse practitioners who specialise in Diabetes, Asthma and COPD, 1 health care assistant and 1 phlebotomist.
The surgery's history dates back to the beginnings of the NHS in 1947 and moved from the Old London Road site to this purpose built surgery in 1988. The surgery stands on what used to be the old Whitwick Colliery site.
The practice covers the town of Coalville and also the following villages:
