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'.

 NHS choose well campaign 

The Choose Well campaign is designed to provide information to the public about the range of NHS and other services, which are available as alternatives to attending the Emergency Department or dialling 999. Please see below for further information. 

 

The GP Welsh Record

NHS Wales is making some changes to the way it uses patient information for care.

From autumn 2016 a digital summary of the information held in your GP record will be available to the doctors, nurses and registered health professionals looking after you when you in hospital.

It will help them to give quick, safe and quality care.

Vital information from your GP Record has been available for some time to support your care when the surgery is closed ‘out of hours’ or in an emergency.

But, until now those caring for you in hospital, during an outpatient appointment of in-patient stay, were not able to access the important information held by your GP straight away. This includes current medications, recent tests and allergies.

Only the healthcare professionals looking you can see your information, and only with your permission. NHS Wales can check on who, when and how every record was looked at.

The Welsh GP Record is a summary of your full GP medical record. It contains your:

Name, address and contact details

Current medication and medication they have been prescribed in the last two years

Allergies or any adverse reactions

Current problems or diagnosis

Results of any recent tests they have had in the previous year, for example, blood tests and x-rays

It does not include any private discussions you may have had with your GP.

Opt-out

If you don't want anyone other than your GP to see your records you can opt-out. You can do this by completing an opt-out form. Click here to download the opt-out form.

Patients are encouraged to talk with their GP before opting-out as it could make a difference to the care they receive. If a parent or guardian of a child under 16 does not wish their child to have a record, they can opt-out on their behalf, but should discuss this with their GP first.
