The LISTEN trial - long Covid care research
The LISTEN trial is a randomised trial that aims to compare the LISTEN intervention, a personalised self-management support approach for people with long Covid to the usual long Covid care available in the NHS. We are particularly interested in the impact on the way people cope with their daily lives.
How to get involved in LISTEN - you can find out if you are eligible to take part on the LISTEN website - www.listentrial.co.uk.
We now have over 65 Seasonal Influenza vaccinations at the surgery. Please contact the GP surgery to arrange this appointment as soon as possible.
Dr Salako and Partners practice team are delighted to announce that Langdon Hills Medical Centre/Southview Park Surgery are research active practices working with the National Institute for Health Research Clinical Research Network (NIHR-CRN).
We work in close collaboration with a team of GPs, research nurses and facilitators covering Luton, Essex and Herts Valley. If a patient is eligible to join a research study running in our practice, a GP or other healthcare professional will provide written information. Taking part in a research study is voluntary and can be beneficial to patients who participate in them.
