Noticeboard

****UPDATE APRIL 2020****We are aware that some people are feeling worried about contacting their GP Surgery for advice and care, or contacting them much later than they would normally if they are unwell.

We want to assure you that your GP Surgery still expects and wants to hear from you if you need them- not just for Coronavirus related symptoms.

If you have any concerns please don’t hesitate to telephone your surgery, but please don’t turn up there in person. You will be offered a telephone or video call with the relevant Health Professional and only if they feel it is necessary, you will be invited in for further assessment.

If you have symptoms of Coronavirus and need to be seen, this will be in a designated area.

**Due to the Corona Virus outbreak we are currently dealing with patients via a telephone triage system in the first instance

**Please do not attend the surgery under any cirucmstance  if you have any of the following symptoms :-  high temperature, new cough, shortness of breath or breathing difficulties, in this instance please follow the guidance below.

 PLEASE RING AFTER 2PM FOR TEST RESULTS TO AVOID THE QUEUE FOR APPOINTMENTS.

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.

Practice Area

Our practice area centres on Ebbw Vale. To the West we cover Tredegar and Waundeg. To the South, our boundary ends at Ysbyty Aneurin Bevan (meaning we can't accept new patients from Victoria or Waunlwyd). To the West, our boundary ends at the top of Beaufort Hill, and in line with the A467, meaning Brynmawr and Nantyglo are not within our boundary. And to the North, we cover Garnlydan and Rassau but stop before the moors. For more information click here.

In November 2013, slight changes were made to our practice boundary with Health Board guidance. As of this date, any paients registered at our surgery who then appear to be outside the boundary, would not be asked to register elsewhere. However, any patients who move address to an area outside of our new boundary will be asked to register in a different surgery. We understand that some patients have concerns about changing surgeries but will ensure this process is as simple as possible for all and endeavour to help patients locate a new surgery if requested.

If you live outside these boundaries, you will not be allowed to register at Glan Rhyd Surgery. A list of alternative practices can be obtained here.
