The persisting crisis in the NHS has had a huge impact on General Practice. With an ageing population and the complex medical needs of patients rising we have seen a significant increase in the demands on GP surgeries. We have also seen a large number of GP’s retiring from the profession and a huge decrease in the number of GP’s willing to take on Partnership positions in practice.
We have advertised for new partners since Dr Peter retired in 2016 without success. Therefore this situation has unfortunately led to Dr Michael and Dr Nuala making the decision to transfer the responsibility of managing the practice to the Health Board in an attempt to try and find a solution. In practical terms this means that in 6 months time the running of the practice will be
taken over by the Health Board.
Currently we are confident that a solution can be found and that the impact on patients and staff will be minimal.

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. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. 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

Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
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.
