Over the Counter Medication/Treatments for Self-Limiting Conditions
As you may be aware, the NHS is under unprecedented financial pressure and it is vital that all NHS resources are used in the best way possible, therefore we are encouraging Patients to self-care in the first instance by managing symptoms through non-medicinal intervention or alternatively, to seek advice from a community Pharmacist and purchase an OTC medication to manage minor ailments as outlined in the ‘Guidance for Self-Limited Conditions’ further down.
This will also help to reduce the number of unnecessary appointments. If a Patient consults with a GP, or an Advanced Nurse Practitioners the Practice will no longer prescribe medicines which are available over the counter for self-limiting conditions, unless there are exceptional circumstances.

The Health Centre
The health centre has suitable access for disabled patients. Parking facilities are available but these are limited. Please do not leave your vehicle in the car park while you finish your shopping!
The history of Station View Health Centre goes back over 70 years to the time that the first GP set up in Hinckley to provide general medical services to the local population. Since then, the practice has gradually developed to become one of the most comprehensive primary health care teams in the Hinckley and Market Bosworth area. This has happened on an evolving basis with the single-handed practice becoming a partnership after the second world war, and a group practice establishing itself in the 1970s. Since that time, and during the 1980s and 1990s, the primary health care team has become reality coupled with professional management and, more recently, purpose-built premises. The practice has worked from many different locations over the years, and during 2002 relocated to a brand new private finance-funded primary care building.
To provide safe, high quality care for patients whilst supporting and encouraging staff to achieve their full potential.
