PARENT NOTICE - MEASLES CASE CONFIRMED LOCALLY (Nov 2017)
A case of measles has been confirmed in the local area, we encourage all parents/guardians of children who are not up to date with their MMR vaccinations to contact the surgery and book an appointment with the practice nurse, or if you wish to discuss the vaccine speak to your health visitor or one of our practice nurses.
IMPORTANT - PATIENT NOTICE
We are currently working through an exciting period of change at Fforestfach Medical Centre. Over recent years both Practices at Fforestfach Medical Centre have been affected by the GP Recruitment crisis that is becoming widespread across the Country, during which time we have been continually reviewing methods of working to maintain high quality care for our patients.
Many Surgeries like ours are facing a time of high demand, increased administrative workload, significant population growth and GP shortages.
We are currently making changes to the way you see a clinician. It is our aim to ensure all patients get the treatment which is most appropriate for them. Changes come in to effect from 6th November 2017 for both Powell & Partners and Bensusan & Partners, so that we can ensure safe and continuing care for our current patients whilst building a robust alternative model of healthcare.
We would urge you to support your GP Practice whilst we introduce these changes to ensure we flourish. We would request you only visit your GP Practice when appropriate and have already taken advice from other services such as a pharmacist, 111, and treated with self-care for minor ailments. For more information on the most appropriate service please refer to www.choosewellwales.org.uk
We will continue to update you with developments over the coming months.
