Other Clinical Services

We also offer a number of other clinical services including vaccinations, contraception and emergency treatment.


Holiday Vaccinations

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements.  This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible  - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. 

Most travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge.  This is because travel vaccination is not included in the services provided by the NHS and therefore is a chargeable service.

Some vaccines will have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine.  Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.

Adult Vaccinations

All adult vaccinations are given by our practice nurses.

Childhood Vaccinations

These vaccinations are given by the Practice Nurse during Baby Clinic

Contraceptive Services
Contraception - Condom These can be obtained through the well woman clinic, doctors’ surgeries or practice nurse.
Home Visits

Patients are requested to telephone BEFORE 10.00am if a visit is required that day.  Emergency visits only will be arranged after that time.  Please give the receptionist as much information as possible to enable the doctor to allocate priority to house calls.  A doctor may telephone you before attending. 

Please remember that several patients can be seen at the surgery in the time that it takes to do a home visit.

Home visits are reserved for the elderly and infirm.

Anyone requesting Home Visits for children will be asked to attend the surgery.

Lack of transport is not a valid reason for requesting a Home Visit.

Emergency Treatment

EMERGENCY TREATMENT – Normal Surgery Hours

Medically urgent cases will be seen without an appointment, but this may involve waiting.


Out of hours calls are requests for EMERGENCY medical treatment outside normal surgery hours. 

Should you have a medical EMERGENCY between 6.30 pm and 8.00 am, weekends and bank holidays, you should telephone our Out of Hours medical provider on 0300 123 50 60

Please do not contact the Out of Hours service unless you have an urgent medical problem that cannot wait until the surgery opens.

When you contact OUT OF HOURS, your call will be answered by a receptionist who will take some personal details and information about the problem you are calling about.  They may need to ask you about any medical conditions you have or any medication you are taking.  You may be referred to a doctor for triage.

Should you need to see a doctor, you may be offered an appointment in a Care Centre – usually the Royal Glamorgan Hospital.  You will be expected to make your own way to the centre, but transport may be provided for people with access difficulties.  You must make an appointment before attending the centre.

A home visit will only be made if the doctor on duty considers it necessary.

If a patient is unconscious, suffering severe chest pain, has severe breathlessness or is suffering heavy blood loss, we suggest you dial 999 immediately and ask for an ambulance.

The Health Care Assistants have been trained in blood sampling, blood pressure monitoring, ECGs and weight reduction. However, the interpretation of the results is the responsibility of the cilinicians.
