Medicine waste campaign
A campaign is running within the NHS to help tackle the waste caused by partially used or unused medication. The practcie is supporting this campaign with promotional material and by asking patients to:
only order what you need; discuss medication with GPs to identify any items no longer needed; take your medicines into hospital if you are admitted; and dispose of medicines securely by returning them to a pharmacist.
For further informaiton, please visit www.medicinewaste.com
Emergency contraception is now available free of charge for patients aged 25 and under from participating local pharmacies.
Please note that the car park section closest to the practice building is for staff parking only. Please do not drive through the 'No Entry' signs. Please do not park in any of the GP parking spaces. Also please do not park on the double yellow lines - you will be restricting access for ambulances to the practice if you do.
The practice encourages all its eligible patients to participate in screening programmes provided by Public Health Wales. These are: Breast Test Wales; Cervical Screening Wales; and Bowel Screening Wales. Information is included below in the relevant pages under 'Further Information'.
If you have a minor eye condition eg. conjunctivitis, you csn visit an optician rather than the GP. The practice can issue you with a prescription for any medication the optician may consider necessary.
