During the Covid-19 pandemic we amended our procedure for booking Doctors’ appointments we are now in the process of reintroducing some prebook able and Face to Face appointments.
The Doctors have asked members of the Care navigation team to ask a few questions to ensure that the correct health professional is referred to. It is still the Norm for the first contact with a Doctor to be via a telephone call back, when the Doctor will discuss your medical problem. Following this discussion the Doctor may ask you to visit the practice for a face 2 face consultation or refer you to the appropriate Care Team.
Patients can now book appointments and request repeat prescriptions online. The service, known as My Health Online, is part of a Welsh Government initiative to improve patient care through better use of IT and information. It is brought to you by corroboration between your GP practice and the NHS Wales Informatics Service. To use these facilities you first need to register with the practice.

The new 111 service has been introduced in this area and has replaced NHS Direct.
For out of Hours contact phone 111 This number is available on the answerphone message by calling the surgery telephone number out of hours.
Please note that the Abertawe Morgannwg University Local Health Board is responsible for the commissioning of the out of hours services.
A summary of the 111 Wales service:
111 is the new, completely free way to contact the NHS from landlines and mobiles. The new service is being piloted in the Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board (ABMU) area, which means you can currently only use the service if you are registered with a GP practice in Swansea, Neath Port Talbot or Bridgend.
The service is an amalgamation of NHS Direct Wales and the GP out-of-hours service and is currently being piloted in Swansea, Neath Port Talbot and Bridgend. If you live outside these areas or are registered with a GP practice in another county, you won’t be able to ring 111.
The 111 service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and you can use it both for health information and advice and to access urgent care.
How it Works
Sometimes it’s difficult to know which service to contact and when, so introducing this memorable three-digit number will make it easier not just to access health information and advice if you are ill are unsure what to do, but to access urgent care once your GP surgery has closed.
If you are deaf, and a Typetalk user, you can access the service on 18011 111.
If you need medical help and are away from home you may need to see the nearest doctor as a temporary resident. The reception staff will provide you with the necessary information to assist you at this time. Please refer to contacting us.
