 Important information when making an appointment with a GP

All patients are asked why they require an appointment to see a GP. This is to ensure all patients receive

  • The most appropriate medical care
  • From the most appropriate medical professional
  • At the most appropriate time

We will continue to provide the same level of service to our patients if they would prefer not to give the reason. 

We would like all our patients to know that our reception team, have   been trained in care navigation, alongside other reception teams within Blaenau Gwent. Care navigation is the offering of alternative services in the local area that may be more suited to your need. In offering this service, we do not discriminate against any of our patients decisions  to accept the offer or not.  You may be offered services such as :-

GP Training

Medical students and Nursing students attend the practice from time to time. We hope that you will co-operate with us and help the students to learn about general practice. However, you will be informed of their presence in advance, and if you do not want them to be present at a consultation, your wishes will be respected. This will not affect your treatment in any way.
