As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
Get Well, Keep Well
Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.
We hope you enjoy having a look around the site and familiarising yourself with some of the online features such as ordering a repeat prescription.
Access for wheelchairs is well provided for, with ramp access and automatic doors to the waiting room. However if you need assistance please ask a member of our staff. We have a wheelchair available for use.
The reception area has an induction loop system for patients with hearing aids.
Several of our staff are Welsh speaking and we can also arrange for you to see a Welsh doctor or nurse if you wish.
New Data Protection Regulations from May 2018 (GDPR)
What is GDPR?
GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulations and is a new piece of legislation that will supersede the Data Protection Act. It will not only apply to the UK and EU; it covers anywhere in the world in which data about EU citizens is processed. GDPR is a new law that determines how your personal data is processed and kept safe, and the legal rights that you have in relation to your own data. The GDPR is similar to the Data Protection Act (DPA) 1998 (which the practice already complies with), but strengthens many of the DPA’s principles.
The regulation applies from the 25th May 2018 and will apply even after the UK leaves the EU.
Please see patient leaflet below for futher information.
