Welcome to Littlewick Medical Centre

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.

How to Use the Website

To navigate the webite, you can use the tabs down the left hand side of the webpage to select the page that you would like to view.

Some tabs will extend to show you a number of other pages available to view e.g hovering over the 'Our Practice' tab will allow you to view pages such as 'Meet the Staff' and 'Patient Information'.

Alternatively, you can select the main page which will provide you with links to each page within that section e.g left clicking 'Our Practice' will take you to a list of links to 'Meet the Staff' and 'Patient Information' - left clicking these links will then take you to your selected page

IT System Back Online

As you may have seen in the news, NHS organisations nationwide were subject to attempted cyber attacks over the weekend resulting in all systems needing to be shut down.

These are now back up and running however, we do expect there to be a backlog and would like to thank all patients in advance for your understanding.

The On Day Service

Starting Monday 6th February, some GP surgeries in Ilkeston have changed the way in which you are seen for urgent, same day appointments. These changes are being made to ensure that all patients that need to see a GP or nurse on the day will have the opportunity to.

What do these changes mean?

This means that Littlewick patients who require an on the day appointment will be seen by a nurse or doctor with The On Day Service. These appointments will still be held at Littlewick.

These appointments will also be available to patients registered at Gladstone House Surgery and Eden Surgery. This does not mean your care is being transferred to Littlewick Medial Centre

How will the new service work?

  • Contact the surgery as normal. A member of our reception team will ask what is wrong as per our surgery protocol.
  • If appropriate, you will be given a time to attend an appointment with a nurse or doctor from The On Day Service.

Why are we making these changes?

Using this service will effectively make more appointments available to our patients for urgent problems. This will in turn open up more routine, pre-bookable appointments to see a GP at your registered surgery.

We understand that it may take some adjusting to, for both patients and staff, and so we ask for your patience whilst we work to improve your care
