About Llanfair Surgery

Llanfair Surgery

Although the structure of the building dates back from 1839, it has been home to the practice since 1984.

The practice is fully computerised and believes strongly in preventative medicine.

All partners are committed to providing essential healthcare services to their patients. 

What to Expect From the GP Practice.

GPs are independent contractors and so can choose to operate differently.  Across Wales, there will be a range of different options available to you.  Click yma for more information in English or yma for further information in Welsh.

Registration

If you need to register, simply visit the surgery and fill out a form.  The practice does not discriminate on the grounds of race, gender, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation or appearance, disability or medical condition.

Patients have a choice of seeing any doctor within the partnership.

We are both a training practice for doctors wanting to become GPs and a teaching practice for medical students.

We have a branch surgery located in Llangadog where daily surgeries are held.  These premises operate almost independently of the main surgery and have a small, dedicated team of clinicians and receptionists dealing with all patient contacts.

Training

GP Registrar

 We train doctors who want to become general practitioners.  These fully qualified doctors are usually with us for 6-12 months.  They are not students and have several years’ of postgraduate experience behind them.

Medical Students

We are a Swansea University teaching practice. 

From time to time, your doctor may have a medical student sitting in on a surgery and as part of their clinical studies, we would be grateful for your co-operation in allowing a student to gain experience in this way.

If however, you do not want the student present during your consultation then please let the receptionist or your doctor know.

Accessibility

There is a car park at the surgery.  Please avoid blocking access for ambulances at the Cottage Hospital.  The “Country Car Scheme” is a service to provide help with transport for patients to attend the surgery or hospital.  Please ask at reception for further details.

Disabled Access

If you have any special needs, please let our staff know so that we can help and ensure you get the same support in the future.

The main entrance to the surgery has electronic doors. 

The Practice is easily accessible and user-friendly for disabled and wheelchair bound patients.  At Llanfair, there are designated parking spaces in the car park together with full wheelchair access to all patient areas of the Practice. 

The Blue Badge scheme is for people with severe mobility problems.  It allows Blue Badge holders to park close to where they need to go.

We have a disabled toilet on the ground floor, just outside the reception area.

We have a wheelchair for patient’s use, at their own risk, should you require one whilst visiting our premises.  Please contact the reception desk for further details. Should you have trouble, do let us know. 

Due to fire regulations, we do have heavy fire doors, however if you have trouble opening these, please ask Reception for assistance as they are always happy to help.

Hard Of Hearing 

If you wear a hearing aid, we have a hearing aid loop to ease communication with any member of staff.  

For visually impaired patients, we offer the opportunity to have an escorted tour of the public areas of the practice to help to familiarise them with the layout of the building.
