During the coronavirus outbreak the surgery remains open but will be operating differently.  We are suspending booking all face to face appointments with effect from 16 March 2020 until further notice.  Please do not attend the surgery.  If you believe that you need to be seen, please request a telephone appointment.  If you already have an appointment booked do not attend the surgery. If it is clinically appropriate the clinician will arrange for you to be seen. Essential nursing appointments will continue as usual for now. This action is essential to maintain your health and the health of your community as advised by the Department of Health.


If your query is about Coronavirus go to 111.nhs.uk/covid-19 or call 111


Anyone with a new persistant cough and/or fever should self-isolate for 7 days; do not call 111 or contact other healthcare providers.  If symptoms deteriorate and you feel you need medical care, contact NHS 111.  Testing will only be done for those in hospital with symptoms



 


 


 

To ensure that our patients and carers are able to communicate with us we do have interpreting services for:

 

  • British Sign Language,
  • telephone interpreting in other languages.

If you are booking an appointment and you, your relative or friend requires an interpreter please ask our team to book one for you.  Please give us as much notice as possible as this helps us to put arrangements in place.

If you would like information provided in an alternative format, for example large print or easy read, or if you need help with communicating with us, for example because you use British Sign Language, please let us know. You can call us on 01235 522379 or email receptionists.longfurlong@nhs.net
