Welcome to Longford Street Medical Centre


Because of the pandemic, the way patients are seen in primary care has changed.

All appointments with a GP are initially by telephone.

If a face to face appointment is necessary, you will be seen in person by a GP.

You and your GP can reach a decision on what is best for you.



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.

The service has been introduced to give you more flexibility in where, when and how you use local health services. It is designed to help those who find it hard to get to the doctors during the week, perhaps because of work and family commitments.

For more information about this service please ask at reception or visit

What should I do if I fall ill when I’m away from home?

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can ask to be registered as a temporary patient at a nearby GP practice for up to three months. This process allows you to make use of a local practice but still remain a patient of your permanent GP practice at home. However, after three months, if you still wish to access this practice you will be required to permanently register.

If you wish to register with us as a temporary patient simply contact the practice directly.
