Yellow Fever Centre
We are a Yellow Fever centre for the vaccination of patients and non-patients who will be travelling to countries where Yellow Fever is a high risk. This service is not available on the NHS; there will be a charge. See Non NHS Services & Charges
Vasectomies are carried out weekly in our minor surgery suite, by trained and Local Health Board accredited clinicians. Patients considering a vasectomy should make an appointment with a Doctor for a referral. Following referral you and your partner will be requested to attend a counselling appointment with Mr Simon Davies, to discuss the procedure in further detail. You will then be given the next available appointment.
There are a number of Private services available from within the Practice, including Audiology, counselling, Physiotherapy and toe nail cutting service see Private Services
