So nice to receive some positive feedback, perfect end to the week :) "I just wanted to give some positive feedback to Lucy the practice nurse. Lucy is always very kind professional and knowledgeable. Lucy takes the time to explore health needs and I always feel listened to and helped. She was fantastic with my sons vaccinations also. Thank you. Thank you to the practice the team for your help and support."

If you already have a vaccination scheduled elsewhere please be sure to attend that appointment as we cannot guarantee you will be added to our list should you miss it. Thank you

Merry Christmas & a Happy & healthy New Year to all our patients! 2020 has been a very difficult year for everyone. Throughout the pandemic restrictions imposed on us have meant we have had to adapt quickly to a very different way of working. This has put a lot of pressure on our GP's & our dedicated team of clinical & administrative staff. We have had to alter the way we consult with patients in order to keep everyone safe. Whilst GP's & nurses are able to manage many problems over the telephone, they have continued to see patients face to face when clinically necessary either in surgery or by home visit. We have also continued to provide chronic disease reviews, medication…

We have had a few phone calls this morning asking when we are "returning to normal". We have spent many weeks preparing for a phased return to General Practice, but we will still not be reverting to pre-Covid times. Unfortunately, Covid19 remains, Public Health Wales show an increase in figures over the last 5 days, and this is something we are monitoring. We want our staff and patients to feel as safe as possible entering the building, for work and for their appointments, therefore staffing the door and limiting the footfall in the practice will be of utmost importance to us. Due to social distancing rules, it is very unlikely that we will ever return to the way…

Please note that if you need to come to surgery to collect a prescription, sick note, letter or any other item we ask that you please come after 2pm. Morning surgery is a very busy time and to enable us to undertake infection control protocols we need to minimise the traffic at the surgery in the mornings. Many thanks
