ENDERBY MEDICAL CENTRE
PRACTICE CATCHMENT AREA
Enderby Surgery first opened on 5 December 1984 in Broad Street, next to Barclays Bank. We moved to Shortridge Lane (formerly Benns General Stores) in 1988 and proceeded to make changes to the buildings and interior. The extension was completed in June 1995 and the name was then changed to Enderby Medical Centre.
The Surgery was offically opened on 17 June 1995 by Mr Neil Townsend, Chairman of Leicestershire Health and since then we have had two more extensions built in 2000 and 2003.
We serve the areas of Enderby, Huncote, Littlethorpe, Narborough & Whetstone with a population of over 5700 patients
All staff at our Practice work together as a team to provide you with the best possible care. We aim to treat you with courtesy, dignity and complete confidence.
This Website has been designed to help you make full use of the many services that our practice has to offer.

A thank you message from Dr H C Bhutani
My heartfelt thanks to all my patients for the best wishes, cards and presents at my retirement event, held at the Civic Centre, Enderby on Saturday 2nd April 2016 to say an emotional farewell to me. I was moved by all the comments, messages, cards, and presents. I will cherish all these memories, the love, respect and confidence which you had in me as a doctor over the years. I am sorry I could not say bye to you all, but I will treasure the long relationship which I had with you all over the last many years. I will miss you all and the Enderby Medical Centre.
On April 2 2016, at Enderby Civic Centre, the Enderby Medical Practice and its patients gathered to celebrate the retirement of Dr H Bhutani & Mrs U Bhutani as their longest serving GP and Practice Manager respectively.
Dr and Mrs Bhutani set up and managed the Practice for over 30 years. The celebration organised by the Practice and supported by the Patients Participation Group (PPG) was a excellent occaion to pay tribute to the retiring couple and the warmth and appreciation of outstanding GP practice. As Chair of the the Enderby PPG, I would like to thank the practice and its patients and and staff for making this a very special occasion.
The PPG comprises of patients who wish to contribute to the high standard of care by the practice through participation in the committee or through conversation to maintain and develop both the service and quality of care provision. It welcomes new members either to the committee or to join as a 'virtual' member via email.
The celebration was captured in pictures to record the history and the day's festivities to provide a rich tapestry of the story so far. Our heartfelt thanks and best wishes to our 'friends' Dr and Mrs Bhutani for a long and happy retirement

Enderby Medical Centre - The Friends & Family Test
Our Practice is taking part in the Friends and Family Test to help us improve our standards of care and treatment, which links in with NHS England's new system of improvements.
What is it? The NHS wants to ensure that you have the best possible experience of care. The FFT is a way of gathering your feedback about this experience and helping to drive improvement in NHS services.
When you receive care at our Practice, you will be given the opportunity to give your feedback by answering a simple question about your expereince "How likely are you to recommend our Practice to friends and family if they need similar care or treatment?"
The results will provide a way for you to easily compare NHS services so that you know where you and your family can get the best possible care.
The information will also give the NHS invaluable information on what patients think of services, which can be used to help make improvements if required.
To take part in the Friends & Family Test for our Practice select the link 'The Friends and Family Test' in the 'online services' section on this website.
Thank you for your co-operation
