As you may have seen, we now send text message reminders for appointments (they are sent the evening before the appointment). We have also started sending reminder messages by text to book appointments for flu clinics and in the future will be sending reminders to book for diabetic and other clinics.

We have had positive feedback about this service. We would be grateful if you would share your mobile number with us and also let us know if it changes, just like you would let us know if any of your details change.

You can opt out (and back in) to this service whenever you like, so if you want to let us have your mobile number but do not want these reminders, this is not a problem, just let the receptionist know who will complete a short form for the admin team

We will be closed on the afternoon of Tuesday 9th January for an educational update session for our doctors and nurses. Out of hours will cover us for anything that cannot wait until the next day. A list of these sessions can be found here.

Thank you for your understanding

Cancellation of Baby Clinic Thursday 28th December

There will be NO baby clinic on Thursday 28th December. Invitations to baby clinic were sent out in error by Child Health so if your baby/child has been sent for to attend on the 28th, you should be receiving a cancellation of appointment by post and your appointment will be rescheduled.  If you attend the surgery on that day, your baby/child will not be vaccinated.

Apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused but this was out of our control. We look forward to seeing you in the New Year and should you have any queries, please can you contact the Practice Nurses at the surgery.

Our Christmas opening hours have been published

********************************************************************************************************************

We are pleased to welcome our new GP registrar (trainee GP) Dr Sarah Jones joined the practice on 18th September

********************************************************************************************************************

We are delighted to announce that Dr Danielle Harris and Dr Jordan Edwards are joining the practice as salaried GPs on the 8th August and 4th September respectively.

We are thrilled that these excellent young GPs have agreed to join us at Ely Bridge and we look forward to working with them

********************************************************************************************************************

Dr Thompson retired at the end of June. He has been at the surgery for 30 years and until recently has been Senior Partner.

We will miss him, but wish him a long and happy retirement

Dr York will also be leaving us as he is relocating away from Cardiff

We are sad to see him go, but we know that he will make a great success in his new home

We are sure that you will join us in wishing them both well

That of course leaves us very short of doctors, but we are lucky in securing the services of new doctors to join us in August and September. More news to come on this when the details have been completed

We will do our best to secure good locum GPs to cover the shortfall
