***NEW UPDATE 5.1.2021***
As we see further restrictions coming in across the country, we need to continue to stay at home unless we need to travel for essential services.
This includes medical appointments, we urge our patients to continue to attend for these ONLY.
DO NOT VISIT THE SURGERY UNLESS YOU HAVE BEEN ASKED TO DO SO.
DO NOT ENTER the building for anything other than the above reasons.
If you require medical assistance please ring the surgery or put your enquiry to our email at email@example.com
Prescription requests can still also be made via

We ask our patients to not attend the surgery if they are suffering from any of the symptoms and to get a test as soon as possible and self isolate. We also ask that you only attend the practice if you have an appointment or have been asked by a GP or member of staff to attend.
We want to reassure everyone that doctors are still seeing patients but to enable the practice to safely do so and adhere to the social distancing rules we can only allow a total of 8 patients in our waiting room at one time. Please use the queuing system in place and once in the surgery there is a one way system.
Prescriptions are still being processed as normal (48hrs processing time) Please do not order any earlier than your medication is due, do not stock pile or over order your medication. We ask all our patients to reduce the footfall and exposure in the surgery and order their prescriptions by:
*MY HEALTH ONLINE
*EMAIL at - firstname.lastname@example.org uk
*EXTERNAL PRESCRIPTION REQUEST POSTBOX
*PRECRIPTION LINE - Housebound
COVID Vaccine 💉
Please be aware that unlike in England – At present Welsh GP practices are not involved in the roll out of the vaccine.
Aneurin Bevan University Health Board are working hard to individually invite people starting with the at-risk over 80s first. In the meantime you can visit Public Health Wales Website for specific questions and answers about the vaccine here:
There is no need to call the practice to ask about the vaccination, or when you will be likely to be invited. The invitation will be done automatically by the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board who are delivering the service.
All patients eligible under the current guidelines have now been identified and invited at least 2 times either by Letter or Text.
We now have authorisation from Welsh Government for us to move forward inviting our 50-64yr olds.
If you would like to receive this vaccine and you are over 50, or have previously been invited and would like to receive the vaccine, please make an appointment at one of our dedicated clinics.
This can be by;
- My Health Online (available 24/7)
- Email at email@example.com (please put Flu Appointment in the heading-this will allow our staff to easily identify your request and reply with a date and time for you to attend)
In line with Government Guidelines & Rules all Patients entering the surgery will be required to wear a facemask. If you do not have a facemask one will be provided but we do encourage our patients to use these sensibly. Please can we ask our patients to abide by these rules for their safety, other patients and our staff.
All information regarding our latest services is available now within our Website. Please use the navigation buttons and links to keep up to date with all the new measures we have put in place including pictures of the new set up to allow social distancing and safety for the most vulnerable among our patients.
