Welcome to Longrove Surgery
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.

Save time – do it online!
GP online services gives patients the option to book appointments, request repeat prescriptions and view their GP records, using their computer, tablet or smartphone rather than having to phone or visit their practice. Online services complement the existing ways patients can access appointments, prescriptions and their records. Our practice already have the facility to offer online access to records and transactional services for our patients. If you are not already registered for GP online services please let a member of the practice team know you would like to use this service.

Sepsis is the term used to describe a severe, life threatening reaction to infection where the body's organs are damaged. It is often not recognised in the early stages and the symptoms are often dismissed. Prompt treatment can save lives. We have posted some prompt cards on our 'further information' page which can be found on the left hand side of this page. Our staff have also received training around sepsis and how to recognise and prioritise patients with concerning symptoms.
