We will be closed on Friday 2nd April and Monday 5th April because of the Bank Holidays. The Surgery will therefore close at 6:30pm on Thursday 1st April and re-open at 8am on Tuesday 6th April.
For urgent care please call the GP Out-of-Hours Service on 111 (calls are free from landlines and mobiles). For advice you can call NHS Direct Wales on 0845 4647 or visit www.nhsdirect.wales.nhs.uk
We have now given 2400 first doses of the vaccine. As of next Friday (26th March 2021) we will be starting to call patients for their second dose of vaccine.
Limited vaccine supply means we will not be able to give any more first doses at present. The second dose of vaccine will be given within 12 weeks of the first. We will be contacting people for the second dose in the order in which they received their first dose from us.
Post edited and updated Tuesday 6th April
The Surgery has now attempted to reach everybody in the 18-64 age group with underlying health conditions (Eligibility for the vaccine) by phone. If you have not been contacted by us and feel you are in this group please ring the surgery before 3pm on Friday to make an appointment (and update your contact details if necessary).
Patients aged 18-64 with underlying health conditions
The Surgery is continuing to vaccinate patients aged 18-64 with underlying health conditions. Details of eligibility for this group (P6) can be found on the Public Health Wales web page: Eligibility for the vaccine. If you are in one of the clinical risk groups specified and have not been contacted by the surgery by 19th March then please contact us.
If you are a patient aged 65 or over and have missed your first vaccination please contact the surgery so that we can arrange an appointment for you.
Patients aged 50-64
The Community Vaccination Centres are currently vaccinating patients aged 60-64. They will then be vaccinating those aged 55-59, followed by those aged 50-54. Appointments will be sent by letter from the NHS. Our vaccination centre is currently the Cynon Valley Indoor Bowls Centre in Mountain Ash.
An online self-referral form for unpaid carers is available on the NHS Wales website: Vaccine Appointments. If you meet the eligibility criteria you will be sent an appointment by letter within 3 weeks. Please note this is not arranged by the GP surgeries.
