IMPORTANT - OXFORD/ASTRA ZENECA COVID19 VACCINATIONS -
We are currently delivering the COVID19 vaccination program using the Oxford/Astra Zeneca vaccine following the national guidance to offer the vaccine to those patients over 80 years of age and will then progress to offer it to those between 70 and 79 and then those between 65 and 69 years old. These patients have now been given their first dose of the vaccine and ee have also contacted patients in these age groups to arrange their second doses.
If you are in the age groups above and have not been contacted by us, please let us know immediately as there is a very small number of patients whom we have been unable to get hold of. Those we cannot get hold of have also been sent a letter asking them to get in touch.
All others patients (including the housebound and those in care homes) are being offered the vaccine by Cardiff & Vale Health Board based on the JCVI priority groups. The health board will contact everyone when they reach each group of patients. Please DO NOT contact the Surgery to ask when you will get your vaccine - at present we cannot answer this. Rest assured you will be contacted by the Health board in due course.
Help with the long-term effects of COVID19:-
A new app has been launched today as part of wider support on offer for people experiencing the longer-term effects of COVID-19.
The COVID Recovery app, available on the App Store for Apple devices or the Google Play Store for those using Android, has been developed by the NHS Wales respiratory health group on behalf of the Welsh Government. It has been designed to offer people a bespoke tool and personal coach to help them on their road to recovery
With more than 100 videos and links to advice, app users will be able to record their symptoms, track their progress and learn to manage their condition at home with support. It includes advice from therapists, psychologists, dietitians and consultants.
The bilingual app is part of a wider national approach to support people with post-COVID syndrome and complements the Keeping Me Well website that the Health Board is continuing to develop to support the population of Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan with a range of rehabilitation needs, including as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Launching 5th August 2020 - New way to access A&E - call 0300 10 20 247 instead of turning up at A&E. This is also the number to call to access the GP Out of Hours Service when the surgery is closed.

In an effort to reduce risk of infection to patients and staff and to cope with unprecedented demand on our service, we are making changes to the way the Practice works. Your co-operation & patience is appreciated. This will be reviewed regularly and updated as appropriate. Access to the building is by appointment only and an intercom system is in operation.
If you have a fever or a new continuous cough or have a loss of smell or taste please do not attend the surgery - You should self-isolate and follow Public Health advice. Information can be found on the Public Health Wales Website at:- https://phw.nhs.wales/topics/latest-information-on-novel-coronavirus-covid-19/

If you wish your prescription to be posted back to you then you should include a stamped self-addressed envelope Prescriptions can be sent to a pharmacy of your choice by request – please indicate this on your order slip.

The Practice will not be providing letters or sick notes to any patient who has been advised to or has chosen to self-isolate nor can we provide any face mask exemption letters. There is a link at the top of this page where you can download a face mask exemption if you require one. Members of the Practice team also have to follow Public Health Advice and may need to self-isolate, and in the event of schools closing further staff may not be able to work - this will have an impact on our staffing levels and services. We understand that some patients may find these changes frustrating, however verbal or any other type abuse to any member of the Practice team will not be tolerated.
Remember to help stop the spread of the virus: Self-isolate if you have symptoms or are feeling unwell. Wash your hands regularly with hot water and soap. Carry disposable tissues with you at all times. Catch coughs and sneezes in a tissue, and dispose of safely immediately.
Help family, friends or neighbours who may be self-isolating or those having difficulty with shopping or collecting prescriptions - or who may just need a reassuring chat with someone.
