Registering with the Surgery

We are proud of the facilities and services that we offer. We work very hard to make sure that every patient feels comfortable and relaxed in our care, and we welcome new patients into this environment.

Our practice list is open and we are accepting new patients that live in our practice catchment area.

New Patients

If you would like to register with our practice, please bring your medical card to the surgery if possible.

If you do not have your medical card, please fill in our permanent patient registration form, both available from reception, or you may download a copy from this page.

If you want to register with a particular doctor, we will do our best to carry out your request. We will tell you if we cannot meet your preference and why we cannot meet it.

Health Checks for New Patients

As a new patient we will invite you to see our practice nurse or health care support worker for an initial health check. When we carry this out we will find out about your medical history, arrange for any blood tests you need and arrange for you to attend our chronic disease management clinics, if appropriate.

These health checks are very important as we are able to establish your health profile early on and offer the best possible support from when you first register with us.

Please make every effort to attend as it is for your benefit.

Temporary Residents

The Doctors are happy to see patients who are temporarily resident in the Practice area should medical advice be required. In this instance persons wishing to be treated should state that they are a temporary resident when reporting to reception.

To register you will need to complete our Temporary Resident Registration form which is available from reception, or can be downloaded from this page.

Practice Catchment Area

The practice will register patients who live within the following areas:

  • Pontardawe
  • Clydach – As far as the Mond
  • Glais – As far as Tyn Y Fron Cottages
  • Bryncoch – As far as the Church of Wales School

Patients new to the area who have come to live with patients living just outside the practice area or who are born to patients living just outside the practice area may be registered at the doctor's discretion.

Our geographical boundaries are constantly under review and may change at short notice.

Non-English Speakers

These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.

Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.
