In addition to GP consultations the practice adheres to the General Medical Services Contract for the provision of healthcare services:
The surgery is pleased to announce that all services are now available using My Health Online. You can now order your repeat prescriptions and make or cancel appointments .If you wish to sign up to this service, please fill in our Request for Online Services (Adult) or Request for Online Services (Child). Once we have received your completed form and Photo ID (we are unable to proceed with your application until we have seen proof of ID) then we will initiate an email that you will be able to use to register and login to our online services. We have put an easy link to My Health Online below for your convenience.
The surgery has now introduced a new text messaging service, in which we will be able to contact you to remind you that your Disease Monitoring is due. If you wish to receive this service, please complete our CVS Text Messaging Service authorisation form.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe a very useful booklet has been published with advice and guidance to help you get the most out of your holiday. To visit please click:- http://ec.europa.eu/publications/booklets/eu_glance/86/en.pdf (this is a large document and may take a minute or two to view)
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
This is not the full list, please enquire if there could be a charge when requesting information or medical.
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
There maybe some delay in providing these services as NHS services are priority.
Clinics are currently being booked and you will receive an appointment over the next few weeks if you are eligible for the vaccine.
If you have not heard or been contacted by the 2nd week of November please give the surgery a call.
There is now a Shingles Vaccination available to patients. This can be administered at anytime of the year (not just seasonal).
If you are between 70 & 79 and have not received the vaccine previously, please contact the surgery to make an appointment with one of our Health Care Assistants.
If you are unsure if you are entitled to this vaccine there is a Eligibility Calculator on the Public Health Wales website that you are able to use buy putting your Date of Birth in.
From Monday 3rd October we will be returning to booked appointments for blood tests. Please contact the surgery if you require a test.
