ASK MY GP

We have a service called ‘Ask My GP’. This service enables our patients to request help from our clinicians via the internet or a smart phone.  You will have the option to request email advice, telephone or face to face help. 

 The service is open 7am - 11am Monday to Friday.

Please make sure you are available to take a phone call any time from putting the request in until 6pm. You may be asked to come to the surgery if the GP requests, so also make sure you can attend that day too. If you feel you will not be available on the day of your request, then please recontact us on a day you are available.

If you have an urgent medical problem once 'Ask my GP' closes for the day, then please telephone the Surgery.

All our registered patients are welcome, and as a parent or carer you can use AskMyGP on behalf of a patient. You may prefer a telephone or email response. 

Ask my GP enables you to see when your usual GP is working so you can request help from specific individuals.

Click on the 'Ask My GP' link above.

For advice outside of normal Surgery hours you can contact 111 for more urgent advice.

Covid Booster

The GP surgeries are not doing the booster jabs. They are being done at the mass vaccination centres (MVC). The health board are contacting eligible patients. More information and contact details can be found in the below link

https://sbuhb.nhs.wales/go/booster-programme/

If you are eligible you must wait to be invited by the health board.

 

Please do not contact your GP to ask for an appointment.

Vaccination and travel

  • Vaccination certificates for international travel are now available in Wales for those who have had two doses of the vaccine by calling 0300 303 5667. (Open seven days, between 9am and 5pm.)

  • DO NOT contact your GP or the health board for a certificate.

  • Essential travel and urgent requests only.

  • Check the requirements of the country you plan to visit.

If a negative Covid test is required prior to travel, this must NOT be an NHS test. Instead you must book and pay for a test from a private provider. Go to this GOV.UK webpage for a list of providers:

Dear Patients


Please find below current guidance on how to access Estuary Group Practice (Gowerton, Penclawdd and Pen Y Bryn sites) during the current Coronavirus pandemic. 

We have now moved to a telephone first approach to allow us to protect patients and reduce the impact of Coronavirus. GPs will continue to take calls and return them throughout the day. When asking for a call back, either through Ask My GP or telephone, you must give an up to date phone number and be able to answer when we ring.

You must also give the receptionist a description of your problem if calling in. When your call is returned the GP or nurse will speak with you, giving over the phone advice regarding your problem and where necessary you may be brought to surgery for further face to face assessment. Please do not put a request in if you cannot attend the surgery that day, wait until a day you know you can attend in case the GP/nurse wants you to come in. 


Additionally due to the changing situation of the Coronavirus pandemic please make sure to check your mobile phones for SMS messages from us, and also follow the Llwchwr cluster page on Facebook and Twitter. Other useful sources are linked below. 


Lastly in line with NHS and Public Health Wales guidance. If you have symptoms of a new persistent cough, fever or loss of taste/smell, you should self isolate and get a PCR test (not a lateral).


Thank you for your understanding at this time.

 

Yours Sincerely, 


The Doctors and Staff of Estuary Group Practice
