Asthma/Diabetes

The management of asthma and diabetes has improved considerably in recent years largely due to the team approach. Our trained practice nurses have developed special skills which have proved invaluable. Please ask at reception for details of the clinics run by the nurses.

Well Person and Health Screening

In addition to the initial check carried out by the practice nurse when you first joined the practice, the nurses will carry out health screening on your behalf. This can include blood pressure, cholesterol, dietary advice, height/weight measurement and general lifestyle counselling.

Periodic Health Checks

Patients between the ages of 16-75 who have not been seen at the surgery for a period of 3 years may request a consultation with a GP, at which any appropriate enquiries and investigations will be made. Consultations can also be requested by patients over 75, who have not been seen at the surgery for 12 months or more. Consultations for the over 75s will take place at home if appropriate.

Cervical Smear Tests

It is recommended that all women over the age of 25 years have a cervical smear test every three years.

The practice nurse will carry out this test during normal surgery hours.

Minor Operations

The doctors may carry out certain minor surgery procedures after consultation.

Foreign Travel

The increase in international travel has led to an increased need for immunisation and other health measures prior to departure.

We stock an extensive range of vaccines and advise you to seek advice as early as possible prior to departure.

There is no charge for many of these vaccines, either for the vaccine or the administering of the vaccine. However, there are some for which a charge will be made. Details are available at reception.

Non-National Health Service Provision

We provide a number of services that are outside the scope of general medical services and a charge, usually the minimum recommended by the British Medical Association, is made.

Examples of these services and the charges made are displayed in the reception area. If you have any doubts please enquire.

If we do not provide a service required, information may be obtained from Primary Care Team at the Cardiff & Vale Local Health Board. Tel: (029) 2183 4512.
