The Practice operates an appointment-only system. Morning appointments are available for people who need to be seen that day and can be booked from 8.30am. Once all the appointments are taken further requests to be seen that day may be referred to the doctor on-call.

Afternoon appointments can usually be booked up to 2 weeks ahead.

The Practice makes every effort to ensure that those patients who say they are in urgent medical need are able to consult with a member of our clinical staff. The Practice endeavours to ensure that appointments are offered at times convenient to our patients, with a practitioner of their choice, where possible and that consultations are available with female members of staff. We also offer telephone advice. We have male and female chaperoning facility.

Calls made outside Surgery hours will be forwarded to the company contracted by Cardiff Local Health Board to provide out-of-hours cover, - please telephone the Surgery number for further details.

Please contact us if you think you need a home visit. All requests for a home visit are screened by the doctor on-call.
