We are aware that you are being asked by Pharmacists to have your flu jab with them and stating it takes the pressure off GP surgeries. We would prefer you to have the vaccination here as it gives our nurses an opportunity to see if there is anything outstanding in your records e.g. blood tests, blood pressure check etc.

If you are aged 65 or over, pregnant, or have a chronic condition (Asthma, COPD, Diabetes, Coronary Heart Disease, Chronic Kidney Disease, history of splenectomy etc.) you may be eligible for a flu jab.
Please contact Hickings Lane Medical Centre to book your flu appointment

Did you know that you can now order repeat prescriptions and book routine GP appointments online? If you would like access to this service please ask at reception or see our online services page for details.


GP Appointments can be made during reception hours, either by calling in at the surgery, online or telephoning the surgery on 0115 9395555.

We offer same day appointments and they are released at 08:00 for a morning appointment and 14:00 for an afternoon appointment. Pre-bookable appointments up to three months ahead are available.  Consultations with the doctors and the nurses are by appointment only.

When booking appointments, patients may indicate their choice of doctor, but in a small practice like ours, there are limitations of availability. Emergencies are dealt with by the on-call doctor.         


If you would like someone to be present during your appointment with a doctor or other health professional, please ask and we will do our best to help.


We are a teaching practice for medical students. This means, on occasions, a trainee doctor will be sitting in during consultations. You will be notified of this and if you have any objection, it is your privilege to ask that the trainee is not present.


If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.

Additional Support

If you require additional support and feel you may need more time with the clinician, please bring it to the receptionists attention.
