Our Practice Nurses hold surgeries Monday to Friday and can help with the following:
Patients on regular prescriptions for high blood pressure, contraception, HRT should consult the practice nurse for a blood pressure check every 3 - 6 months.

The contraceptive implant is a highly effective method of birth control, the device is about the same size as a matchstick. It is placed just below the skin of your upper arm where it releases the hormone progestin in small doses and prevents your ovaries from releasing eggs but also thickens your cervical mucus making it hard for sperm to move around the womb and fertilize an egg. 99.95% effective, it is suitable for women who want long acting reversible contraception for up to 3 or 5 years and wish to avoid daily, weekly or monthly regimen. It can offer an alternative to those affected by the hormone Estrogen and can be used when breastfeeding six weeks after childbirth. In some women it may reduce heavy and painful periods, in others it may initially cause a change in bleeding patterns. Does not protect against HIV infection and other sexually transmitted infections.
The (IUD) intrauterine device - intrauterine meaning inside the uterus. The device immobilises sperm making it hard for them to move around the womb but does not stop the ovaries from making an egg each month. Once inserted it can stay in place in the womb for 5 or 10 years (depending on the type). 99% effective, suitable for women who want long acting reversible contraception and wish to avoid daily, weekly or monthly regimen. It isn't affected by other medications. It can offer an alternative to those affected by the hormone Estrogen and can be used when breastfeeding. Fertility returns to previous levels once the IUD is removed. Small risk of infection at insertion and of expulsion. It may cause cramps and/or irregular bleeding. Does not protect against HIV infection and other sexually transmitted infections.

All members of our practice team are bound by strict rules of confidentiality that apply to all aspects of their work. The practice is computerised and is registered under the Data Protection Act. You can be sure that anything you discuss with any member of this practice – family doctor, nurse or receptionist – will stay confidential. Even if you are aged under 16, nothing will be said to anyone – including parents, other family members, care workers or tutors – without your permission. The only reason we might have to consider passing on confidential information without your permission, would be to protect you or someone else from serious harm. We would always try to discuss this with you first and this might be to provide further medical treatment for you e.g. from district nurses and hospital services. To help you get other services e.g. from the social work department which requires your consent. When we have a duty to others e.g. in child protection cases anonymised patient information will also be used at local and national level to help the Health Board and Government plan services e.g. for diabetic care

If you have a complaint or concern about the service you have received from the doctors or any of the personnel working in this practice, please let us know. We operate a practice complaint procedure as part of an NHS complaints system, which meets national criteria.
We hope that we can sort most problems out easily and quickly, often at the time they arise and with the person concerned. If you wish to make a formal complaint, please do so AS SOON AS POSSIBLE – ideally within a matter of a few days. This will enable us to establish what happened more easily. If doing that is not possible your complaint should be submitted within 12 months of the incident that caused the problem; or within 12 months of discovering that you have a problem. You should address your complaint in writing to the Practice Manager. She will make sure that we deal with your concerns promptly and in the correct way. You should be as specific and concise as possible. We will acknowledge your complaint within 3 working days and aim to have fully investigated within 10 working days of the date it was received. If we expect it to take longer we will explain the reason for the delay and tell you when we expect to finish. When we look into your complaint, we will investigate the circumstances; make it possible for you to discuss the problem with those concerned; make sure you receive an apology if this is appropriate, and take steps to make sure any problem does not arise again
