Private Consultations and continuation of care

Some patients are choosing to see a private Consultant, who will then provide an opinion and/or treat a patient in the private sector, offering ongoing treatment for that particular condition.

In this situation, that Consultant maintains clinical responsibility for the patient regarding that condition. Until the consultant discharges the patient, that episode of care continues, and the clinical responsibility remains with that Consultant. Should there be a need to prescribe, the Consultant should prescribe privately for their private patient.

A private prescription cannot be exchanged for an NHS prescription and our GPs cannot issue prescriptions in such a situation, as they are not clinically responsibility for managing that particular condition.

  

Training Afternoon  

The Practice will be closed for training between 1.30pm - 5.30pm on Thursday 9th March 2023.

 

Covid Passports/Certificate

Patients who are registered with a GP in Wales are now able to obtain their vaccination status via the digital NHS Covid Pass, after they have verified their identity using the NHS log-in.
