Dr Kaur started the practice as a single handed GP with a zero list size in 1978. The surgery was located in a semi-detached house at 20 Gladstone Street, Hathern. Dr Singh joined the practice in November 1981 as a partner.
The practice was expanding and as there were quite a few patients from the newly built Gorse Covert estate in Loughborough who came to Hathern, permission was given by the FPC in 1982 to open a branch surgery in Loughborough. This was started in a shop unit in the new Gorse Covert shopping complex whilst a new surgery was being built at its present site on Maxwell Drive. It was a single doctor unit and was completed in November 1983. Meanwhile at Hathern, a two-doctor unit was built on Cross Street in 1984 in the garden of the old school house that used to be the headmaster’s house when it was built around later half of the nineteenth century.
Dr Saund joined the partnership in 1993 and with further development of the Gorse Covert estate, and rising popularity at Hathern since that time, both the Maxwell Drive surgery and Cross Street surgeries were progressively expanded. In September 2009 the Practice name was changed from Dr Kaur and Partners to Dishley Grange Medical Practice.
During the last few years, there have been significant changes in the partnership and from September 2018, we have 4 partners providing clinical leadership to the practice:
Dr Narinder Singh-Saund
Dr Mohammed Roshan
Professor Rishabh Prasad
Dr Vinay Gupta
The Partners are supported by the management team led by Simon Jones, Practice Business Manager and the practice employs regular GPs, a Specialist Practitioner, Clinical Pharmacist and an Assessment Physiotherapist to deliver healthcare needs to the local community.
Patient numbers continue to rise and the on-going development of the practice is well supported by a professional team of nursing and administrative staff.
In line with the national requirements NHS England, Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland carried out the Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment and Hathern has been designated as rural which secures the dispensing at Cross Street until the next review.
The Practice takes an active part in Charnwood Community GP Network in developing local services and is well placed to meet the challenges of the changing National Health Service and also any demands that it may face with any new housing that is planned over the next fifteen years as part of “Charnwood 2021 Local Development Plan”.
