If you are unsure about the care we provide, you may feel anxious about your first visit to Longfield

Whether you have just been diagnosed, you’re coming because you need support as you manage your illness, or you’re a family carer who needs support, rest assured, you have come to the right place. 

Many people who come to Longfield find that the environment enables them to relax, have an opportunity to talk with others who are in a similar place as themselves and learn new skills to help manage their condition. We don't have any in-patients here, so the environment and staffing are designed specifically for the needs of people like you. Your visit and care is designed around you and your needs and preferences, so can be adjusted to reflect them.

Please take a look at some of our short videos, made with our patients and family carers, to give you their views and experiences of our support.

As part of your care, you will meet our specialist team that includes registered nurses, healthcare assistants, physiotherapists, counsellors and complementary therapists. One of the indirect benefits many of our patients also talk about is the opportunity to meet other people in a similar position as them, living with a life-limiting illness.

Getting to Longfield

Longfield is located just outside Minchinhampton, about 3 miles from Stroud. It’s easy to reach us by car, bus or train. Stroud Railway Station is 3 ½ miles away, and 10 minutes by taxi. If you are unable to arrange your own transport, we may be able to arrange for one of our volunteer drivers to provide you with transportation to and from our centre.

Parking and disabled access

Parking at Longfield is free and we have a large car park, so you won’t have trouble finding a space outside the main entrance.

We also have full disabled facilities, with wheelchair access from the car park, as well as disabled toilets, a lift and a loop system. Should you need a hand getting inside, we’ll be happy to support you or provide a wheelchair if needed.
