With patient’s needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
We are monitoring the ability for patients to access the services of Abertillery Group Practice very carefully.
Currently all GP/Nurse Practitioner appointments are being handled through telephone consultations.
We appreciate the ongoing concern which these events have created and we are doing our best to ensure ongoing services are able to be accessed by all of our patients.
We will continue to update this page with further details.
NEW way to request Prescriptions:
There is a change coming to doctor's surgeries in Blaenau Gwent called Care Navigation
Care Navigation: What does it mean for you?
Receptionists are now trained as "Care Navigators" with the support of your GPs.
Care Navigation ensures you receive care from the most appropriate professional - not all requests need a GP appointment.
All patients will be politely and confidentially asked the reason for their appointment request. If you have symptoms that are better suited to care from other organisations, community based services or surgery team members, the Care Navigator will give you the choice to access these instead.
These could include:
- Urgent eye care from Opticians
- Emergency dental services
- Direct access physiotherapy
Care Navigators understand that what you tell them may still mean you need to see a GP. Care Navigators will never make clinical decisions about you. Please be patient with Care Navigators - the best way to get you the most appropriate support is by asking you specific questions.
How to Access GP/Nurse Practitioner Services
You need to contact us on the day which is convenient for you to see or speak to a GP or Nurse Practitioner, you will be offered either a same day face-to-face or telephone consultation. If you are unsure if a telephone consultation is suitable, please ask one of our trained staff who would be able to assist you.
You can still book Practice Nurse and Health Care Assistant appointments for up to 3 months ahead.
We are looking to recruit a Salaried GP possibly with a view to Partnership, 6-8 sessions preferably but open to discussion.
If you are interested in joining us at Abertillery Group Practice, and would like an opportunity to discuss the position further, then please contact Joe Moreno, Practice Manager in the first instance:
