The Area: We are located on a main road into Leicester about 2 miles from the city centre. The high street has all associated local amenities. There are pharmacies, supermarkets, banks, walk in center, police station, parks and petrol station close to the practice. The area is such that we treat patients from all socio-economic backgrounds. This makes our practice interesting and varied. There are easy public transport links into the city.
Other Points of Interest: Leicester’s cultural mix makes it a wonderfully diverse place to live. Within the city centre there is a very modern shopping complex and a good selection of restaurants,bars and clubs. However a short trip out of Leicester will bring into beautiful countryside with excellent opportunities for many outdoor activities.
