***IMPORTANT FLU INFORMATION***


Please note we are currently running our flu clinics.  If you are entitled to the Flu Vaccine and have received a letter please contact the surgery to make an appointment.  We are also running a Fluenz Clinic for 2-3 year olds.


Children are more likely to suffer from flu than adults. Giving flu vaccine to children helps stop them catching and spreading the infection, so it protects them and also the people around them, including those at increased risk such as elderly relatives or people with chronic health conditions.  If you have a child in this age range please contact the surgery to arrange an appointment.  Primary school children will receive theirs at school.

When We Are Closed

Please note the surgery is closed on the following dates: -

Monday 26th August 2019 - Summer Bank Holiday

Wednesday 25th December 2019 - Christmas Day

Thursday 26th December 2019 - Boxing Day

If you require medical assistance outside of surgery hours Please call 111

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.

111 Service launched in Gwent

Wednesday, 14 August 2019
A brand new non-emergency healthcare telephone number launched today (Tuesday, 13th AUgust 2019) in the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board area...
 
111 Main LogoThe new 111 phone number replaces the current NHS Direct Wales and GP Out of Hours service numbers from Tuesday 13th August. Patients can call 111 for health information and advice, as well as for urgent care such as GP Out of Hours.
  
The easy-to-remember Freephone number will be available 24 hours a day to signpost patients to the most appropriate treatments for them, including the Out of Hours service if necessary. The service is clinically-led, with trained call handlers working together with clinicians such as GPs, Nurses, Advanced Nurse Practitioners and Pharmacists.
 
For patients who are unsure whether or not their urgent health concern is an emergency, a trained call handler can determine this following a series of questions, and can arrange an ambulance if required. The service is designed to ensure patients get the right treatment, in the right place, at the right time, relieving pressure on our busy ambulances and Emergency Departments.
 
As part of a successful phased rollout throughout Wales, Aneurin Bevan University Health Board is the fourth Health Board to launch this new service.
 
Access to the Dental Helpline via 01633 744387 will remain unchanged.
