THERE IS A CHANGE COMING TO YOUR DOCTOR'S SURGERY: 'CARE NAVIGATION' - What does it mean to you as a patient?
Please see Further Information for full details
*Pre-bookable appointments now available as a face to face consultation or as a telephone consultation****
***We ask all our patients who are eligible for a flu vaccination to telephone us and book in as soon as possible, we have Saturday morning appointments available***
Glan Rhyd Surgery now has a waiting room blood pressure monitor. Why not call by, have your blood pressure recorded at your own convenience and hand the printed reading to a member of the reception team.
We are pleased to inform all our patients and patients registered elsewhere, that we now provide IUD/IUS (coil) insertions and removals. Please contact the surgery for further information.
A travel questionnaire is available to download below or from Glan Rhyd Surgery and should ideally be completed and handed in to the Practice 6 weeks prior to your travel. A delay in submission may not allow sufficient time to complete a course of immunisations.
All patients MUST contact the practice 48 working hours after the form submission to obtain the appropriate travel advice and/or make the necessary appointments with our Practice Nurses.

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.
Our treatment rooms are modern and equipped to a high specification. We provide the following services:
Appointments for the above services can be arranged via reception.
A counselling service is also available.
Our GP's do carry out specific medicals such as Taxi medicals or HGV medicals. There is a fee for these and appointments can be made by telephoning the Practice Secretary between the hours of 9.30am and 10.30 on Monday through to Friday.
You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.
If you are sick for more than seven days, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay).
It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ (see below) from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.
You could also provide evidence from someone who is not a medical practitioner, e.g. a dentist. Your employer will decide whether or not this evidence is acceptable. If your employer has any doubts, they may still ask for a medical certificate from your GP.
The 'fit note' was introduced on 6 April 2010. With your employer's support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.
