Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query. Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits.
The midwives are at Longtown Medical Practice on Friday mornings and hold clinics between 09:15 and 11:55am. Please telephone 01228 791328 to make your appointments.
District nursing services are provided by the Cumbria Primary Care Trust (PCT) and are based at Longtown Medical Centre. You can contact them either through reception or directly on 01228 791406. If you have an illness or incapacity that means that you need nursing care in your own home, one of the district nurses will visit you. Patients who are likely to benefit from this service include the housebound, the elderly, people with a terminal illness, and those who have recently been discharged from hospital. District nurses provide wound care, palliative care, continence advice, health promotion advice and advice on co-ordinating care packages.
