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.
On Wednesday 22nd January 2020 Public Health England released interim advice to GPs on dealing with the potential cases of coronavirus in patients who have visit affected regions of China. If you have been to China within the last 2 weeks and are experiencing cold, flu or respiratory symptoms, please do not enter the surgery. Call us on 0208 370 6660 and ask to speak to the Duty Doctor.
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.
Medicines and Brexit
Please keep ordering your repeat prescriptions and taking your medicines as normal. It is unnecessary to change how you order and take your medicines. It's important you don't ask for more medicines than you normally need, doing so risks pressure on availability of medicines for other people. Further advice is available from the NHS England website

GP Online Services
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. 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.
