Non-urgent advice: Injectable Medication

Please continue to read this if you receive one of the medications listed below from the nursing team at Long Furlong Medical Centre

• Decapeptyl
• Triptorelin
• Zoladex
• B12
• Depo-provera contraceptive injection
• Nebido- Testosterone
• Prostap
• Leuprorelin

We are changing the way that we provide some injectable medications. We will continue to provide the nursing appointments but we are asking you to request your medication (injection) in the same way you request other prescriptions, collect it from your nominated pharmacy and bring it to your appointment.

This is due to increasing costs of medicines and the reimbursement to the practice from NHS England which is no longer keeping up with this rising cost.
You may have to pay a prescription cost for your prescription - please check with your pharmacy.

Blood Test requested by the Hospital

We are only able to take your blood test requested by the hospital if they have given you the request form or labels.

If you don't have this, please contact the department who requested it and rebook your appointment when you have received it.

This is to ensure the correct test is taken and reaches the clinician who asked for it.

At Long Furlong we aim to provide the best possible quality and range of services for all our patients.   To help us achieve our aims we would like to work with groups of patients who represent the different needs and ages of our practice population. We hope our patients will contribute to the continuous improvement of the services offered now and in the future and that communication between the practice and its patients will improve.

We realise that everyone leads full and busy lives and, therefore, we would only contact you when changes or developments to the surgery or the services provided are being planned that might affect you or the group of patients that you represent – this could be just a couple of times a year.  We anticipate that much of the work will be done by surveys which could be completed either electronically or by post.  The results of the surveys will be published on our website and in a practice newsletter which will be available for all patients in our Waiting Room and posted to those members of the patient group that opt to complete postal surveys.

If you would be interested in joining our group and representing other patients, we would be very interested to hear from you.  Please complete the form below and return to the practice or alternatively for more information, contact Debbie Major, Practice Manager by phone on 01235 522379 or email debbie.major@nhs.net

Getting Your View

The group would like to contact patients on occasion by email and/or text so that they can obtain the views of the widest group of patients possible. We would like to obtain your email address and mobile phone number to do this. Please complete the Patient Contact Form to provide your consent for this.
