Practice Health Champions
We are volunteers recruited from Longrove surgery to work alongside the doctors, nurses and support staff. We all live within the practice catchment area and are part of the local community. We help with practice work – e.g. annual flu clinics. We also organise activities and advertise events to help Longrove patients cope with problems such as isolation, loneliness, bereavement or learning to live with a long-term condition.
We would like to welcome any Longrove patient to join in with the activities we’ve organised and would welcome your ideas and suggestions for future activities. Currently you could join us for our walking sessions each Tuesday, come to our afternoon tea for a chat with other patients, or get knitting with our Knit and Chat sessions. For more information, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message for us in the book at the receptionists’ desk at the surgery.
