Dr Emma Baker is now qualified as a Peer Breastfeeding Supporter and is happy to see patients to provide advice and support.
We now have a Dietitian in the practice who you can self-refer to for an individual appointment, without seeing your GP first.
The dietitian can help you to improve your health and wellbeing, as well as support you to maintain the weight you lose. By losing weight you can improve your health, emotional well-being and decrease the risk of diabetes and heart disease.
Do you like the sound of developing skills in menu planning, calorie counting and ways to overcome emotional links with food? Losing weight is different for each individual but you don’t have to go it alone.
When the time is right for you, this service is here to help you make manageable lifelong changes in a way which is most suitable for you.
Appointments will be held at your GP Practice and your Body Mass Index (BMI) must be above 30kg/m2 (a measure of excess weight). Ask your receptionist to book an appointment and start your weight loss journey today!
The Welsh GP Record is a digital summary of the information held in your GP record which is available to the doctors, nurses and registered health professionals looking after you when you in hospital. It will help them to give quick, safe and quality care. Vital information from your GP Record has been available for some time to support your care when the surgery is closed ‘out of hours’ or in an emergency. Only the healthcare professionals looking after you can see your information, and only with your permission. NHS Wales can check on who, when and how every record was looked at. The Welsh GP Record is a summary of your full GP medical record.
It contains your Name, address and contact details, current medication and medication you have been prescribed in the last two years, allergies or any adverse reactions, current problems or diagnosis and results of any recent tests you have had in the previous year, for example, blood tests and x-rays
It does not include any private discussions you may have had with your GP.
- If you don’t want anyone other than your GP practice to see your records you can opt-out. You can do this by completing an opt-out form available from the practice.
- Patients are encouraged to talk with their GP before opting-out as it could make a difference to the care they receive. If a parent or guardian of a child under 16 does not wish their child to have a record, they can opt-out on their behalf, but should discuss this with their GP first.
