COVID Booster Vaccines - PLEASE DO NOT RING THE PRACTICE
The practice is not giving COVID booster vaccines. The programme is health board led, and the public will be invited by the Mass Vaccination Clinics. We are not involved and ask that patients not ring us with any enquiries as we don't have any information.
Please visit the health board website for information and guidance on the vaccine programme: https://cavuhb.nhs.wales/

*Routine appointments can be booked at any time of the day for a GP or Nurse and these are available 6 weeks in advance. If you need access urgently, please ring from 8.30 in the morning for an 'on-the-day' appointment.
Medication review appointments can be booked 6 weeks in advance with our clinical pharmacist. If you are due a review we will advise you on your prescription who you need to book your appointment with, as it may be more appropriate to see a nurse or GP.
