Welcome to Western Vale Family Practice

Who we are

The Doctors and team at Western Vale Family Practice are proud to offer high standards of patient-centred healthcare to you and your family.

We are a friendly, caring and forward thinking Practice. We provide healthcare to a patient population of over 11,500 patients across the Western Vale of Glamorgan. We also undertake the vocational training of General Practitioners and Medical Students.

Our main site, which is also our administration centre, is in the purpose- developed Health Centre in Cowbridge, and we have branch surgeries in Llantwit Major Health Centre and St Athan.

 

GP Data Collection
An increasing number of Practices are receiving communications from patients noting their ‘Dissent from secondary use of GP patient identifiable data’ either via a template letter, email or verbally.
This is following a notice for NHS Digital in ENGLAND for daily data collection under General Practice Data for Planning and Research (GPDPR) service. This DOESN'T apply to practices in Wales.
 
This data service does not presently apply to General Practices in Wales and is specifically for those Practices providing contracted services to English residents within England.
 
The increasing number of requests are likely to be due the fact that English residents have until 23rd June to notify their English GP practice that they wish to ‘opt-out’ of this data collection due to start on 1st July 2021.
 
 
 
Please do not contact the practice about the above as it doesn't apply to patients living in Wales
