Although we cover a large area, this is mainly for the benefit of our existing patients who move house but may wish to remain with the practice. We advise new patients to register with a doctor whose practice is near where they live. This is for the patient's benefit as it should prove more convenient. The practice retains the right to refuse to accept a patient, unless directed to do so by the Health Board.
If you change your name, address or telephone number please inform the receptionist. Failure to do this may mean letters from the hospital or the practice may not reach you. This could lead to you missing appointments or even being removed from the doctor's list, by the Health Board, as they may have no knowledge of your new address and assume you have moved from the area.
This has happened on a number of occasions, leading to difficulties in obtaining practice records and other information.
