COVID VACCINATION UPDATE!
Covid vaccination information (Public Health Wales) - please note that you will be contacted by the health board or our surgery to arrange your vaccination in due course. Please DO NOT contact the surgery about this unless we have asked you to do so. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing uncertainty with regards to our weekly vaccine allocation from the health board, we are unable to provide you with an estimated time-frame for when and where you will be vaccinated, but what we can say is that, as from the week commencing 15th Feb, the health board will start inviting 68 and 69 year olds to the mass vaccination centre in Llandudno, whereas 65-67 year olds will be invited to our surgery.
Please click on the link below to read an important message from Betsi Cadwaladr Health Board that relates to Covid vaccination for those older than 70. Please share this message with others. Thank you.
We are delighted to welcome Sian Forster to our team. Dr Forster is also a GP Trainer and Educational Supervisor. We are also very pleased to announce that Dr Kevin Carter, who was a trainee with us, has now become a partner at our practice.
In an attempt to protect our community against the effects of Coronavirus (COVID-19), telephone triage is in operation for all enquiries. No appointments will be given without being triaged first. Please DO NOT QUEUE OUTSIDE THE SURGERY. We expect you to wear a face covering at the surgery and to keep it on at all times. Unless necessary and agreed beforehand during triage, you mustn't be accompanied, so as to minimise the risk to others and help us with our waiting area physical distancing.
At this difficult time, we are trying our best to maintain our service and care for you, whilst following national public health guidance. If you have symptoms to suggest Coronavirus, or you have been in contact with someone who has such symptoms, please visit our surgery's Coronavirus information page below (by clicking the link or scanning the QR code with a mobile phone camera), for advice on self-care, staying at home, and other matters.
Don't contact NHS 111 just to tell them you're staying at home.
If you have serious symptoms you cannot manage at home, use NHS 111 online (or call NHS111 if not online).
If you inappropriately visiting our surgery, you are putting others at risk, as well as risking the closure of our surgery for all our patients.
