We are delighted to offer a new service to patients who use Castle Mead Medical Centre at Hinckley. From 26th May 2015 Mr David Wilkinson as an Urgent Care Practitioner will be running an Urgent Care Clinic every day at the surgery. David is a very experienced advanced nurse practitioner who has for the past few years been working at the Urgent Care Centre at Leicester Royal Infirmary. He is able to deal with urgent problems and prescribe medication, he may also ask you to come in after his consultation for a follow up appointment. In order for this service to run smoothly and book patients in with him appropriately the receptionist will ask you some questions about your problem. Please do not feel offended it will enable us to appropriately book you into the correct slot. If David cannot help you he will book you in to see the Duty doctor. Our doctors feel that 90% of Urgent on the Day appointments can be seen by David our Urgent Care Practitioner.
