Home Visit Policy -
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are operating a telephone first appointment system. You can call us from 8 am any weekday morning and request a telephone call from a GP. The receptionist will take your details and a doctor will call back to discuss your problem. For some problems you will be asked to send us a photograph prior to speaking to a doctor, this will be via a secure link sent to your smart phone. You must speak to a receptionist prior to sending any photographs.
If you book an appointment via My Health Online please note this is also over the phone, do not attend unless a GP asks you to. Most consultations can be carried out over the phone but if a GP needs to perform an examination you will be asked to attend the practice at a certain time. Please attend on your own unless you need assistance or have a carer.
If we have reached maximum capacity for routine daily appointments you will be asked to call back the following day but you feel you need to see a doctor as a matter of urgency, and cannot wait for a routine appointment, you will need to discuss your concerns with the (day-time-on-call) doctor. All children under 16 yrs with acute problems will be offered a same day consultation.
Nurses & Health Care Support Workers
Morning and afternoon appointments for Monday to Friday can be booked 4 weeks in advance. You will be asked by the receptionist the nature of your appointment in order to book the most appropriate clinic. You can also request a non-urgent appointment for a nurse or health care support worker via our email email@example.com
If you are unable to keep an appointment then please cancel it. If you do not attend your appointment, you waste the doctors or nurses time, deny other patients the opportunity to see them and increase the overall waiting time for routine appointments. If you fail to attend 3 appointments you will be removed from our patient list and you will need to register with another GP practice.
Out of Surgery Core Hours - 6.30 pm and 8.00 am weekdays, at weekends and on bank holidays.
Out of hours access to medical care is provided by the Swansea GP Out of Hours Service.
To access the GP Out of Hours Service call 111 and make the appropriate selection. Your call will be answered by a call handler who will ask you for some details and why you need to see a doctor. You may be put through to a clinician or one will call you back.
Keep this contact number to hand as it will mean you do not have to call the surgery first to get the number from our answer-phone.
The GP Out of Hours service is NOT a walk in service. Please DO NOT attend the Treatment Centre without prior arrangement.
