Littlewick Medical Centre BMJ Awards 2013 Primary Care Team of the Year
We are a Medical Centre that proudly serves Ilkeston and the local area extending to West Hallam with our branch surgery The Dales Medical Centre.
Littlewick Medical Centre has long been established in the area since 1920 and was taken over just before the onset of World War II by Dr T E Skinner after which the practice was incorporated into the NHS. Since then our practice has moved from strength to strength now occupying the purpose built site on Nottingham Road, Ilkeston.
We focus ourselves on quick efficient service and building lasting relationships with all our patients as we believe this is vital to a modern medical centre at the heart of a vibrant community.
If you'd like to find out more about Littlewick Medical Centre in general, please find below our free downloadable booklet and latest newsletter.
An outbreak of measles in south Wales has led to nearly 600 cases being diagnosed since Novemeber 2012. Public Health officials are therefore reiterating its advice to parents and carers of children who have not been vaccinated to make immediate arrangements for their vaccination.
Measles is a highly infectious viral illness that can lead to serious complicatons, including blindness and even death. Anyone can get measles if they haven't been vaccinated or had it before, although it's most common seen in children.
Vaccination is safe and effective and we strongly advise that you have your child vaccinated if you haven't done so already. The surgery will be holding a drop in session on June 13th 2013 2:30pm-5:30pm

Intercare are a charity whose work involves sending off unused medications and supplies to Africa where millions of people have to go without treatment for everyday illnesses because of lack of basic medications. Intercare supports 121 health units in Ghana, Cameroon, Tanzania, Zambia, Sierra Leone and Malawi. The charity has sent more than £10 million worth of medicines to these countries.
The charity will accept complete strips of tablets within their original packaging, inhalers, injections which do not require refrigeration, creams, eye drops/ointments, dressings and bandages. All medicines need at least 15 months shelf life. Unfortunately the charity can’t accept controlled drugs, glass bottles, incomplete strips of tablets, items requiring refrigeration and used syringes or needles.
Littlewick needs your help to help us support this charity. Should you have any questions, queries or simply wish to hand in medicines/supplies please contact Laura at the surgery.
Littlewick Medical Centre is accepting new patients who live within the surgery boundary lines, which can be seen on the Area We Cover page.
Registration is easy. Patients in need of registering with the doctor can complete the Registration forms which are available from reception in our New Patient Pack. To save time, one of these forms can be opened below. Upon completion, the forms are to be handed into the surgery and the process will be established with the Health Authority to obtain the medical records from the previous G.P.
New patients are invited to have a registration appointment with the Health Care Assistants for a basic well person check. This appointment is not compulsory but is recommended as it allows the surgery to obtain a bit of medical information prior to the full medical records arriving. For any queries please contact the surgery on 0115 9325229.
On Thursday 30th May 2013 Littlewick will be holding a further Carers Coffee Morning from 10am – 11:30am. You are welcome to attend whether you’re a Littlewick patient or not. This will be an ideal opportunity for carers and the cared for to get together and chat with each other. Derbyshire Carers will also be in attendance for any advice or help you may need.
