Welcome to New Longton Surgery
We are a small long established practice serving the village of New Longton and surrounding areas. We try to get to know our patients and are committed to continuity of care which we believe is so important for everyone.
We offer a wide range of clinics and services and work closely with other health care professionals to be part of an efficient primary health care team. Whilst most care is delivered from our building, where appropriate you may be asked to attend local health centres or even the hospital. We understand that in exceptional circumstances care needs to be given at home.
There is a toilet for the disabled within the surgery. All consulting rooms are on the ground floor and are accessible to wheelchair users. Guide dogs for the blind are welcome but no other animals please. We can arrange access to telephone translators if needed.
Small practices are under threat nationally and whilst we may work in a traditional "patient-centred" way, we are also dealing with the relentless changes expected of us and planning for the future. We work under the umbrella of Chorley and South Ribble Clinical Commissioning Group (the CCG) and NHS England - please be understanding with us when we tell you that not everything is under our control!
According to The World Health Organisation, health is "a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity". Rather than wait until you are unwell, much of what our team of healthcare professionals does is designed to keep you well, happy and safe. We can't do this without you - a healthy lifestyle is in your control!
Our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
We hope you enjoy having a look around the site and familiarising yourself with some of the online features such as ordering a repeat prescription. Whatever your thoughts, be sure to let us know via our feedback function. Comments and suggestions are always a great way of helping us continue to enhance the way we look after you.
