Welcome to Western Vale Family Practice

'Your Family is our Practice'

We are a friendly, caring and forward thinking Practice. We provide healthcare to a patient population of over 12,000 patients across the Western Vale of Glamorgan. We also undertake the vocational training of General Practitioners, Pharmacists 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 surgery (see Practice locations).


Western Vale Family Practice is a non-limited Partnership owned by Drs McGovern, Wilkinson, Coleman, Davies, Cleland and Morris.
