Mental health practitioners are professionals who provide therapy and mental health care. We are happy to announce we now have a Mental Health Practitioner apart of our clinical team at the Practice, working Tuesdays and Fridays at Eryl Surgery, Llantwit Major and our branch Chapel Surgery, St Athan as per timetable above. Our Mental Health Practitioner will be able to deal with any mental health concerns and where appropriate signpost patients to specialist services.
Do not hesitate to ask our Receptionists for more information.
Results via Text Message
Blood Test, Urinary Test and X-ray Test Results will be communicated via SMS
From Tuesday 28th May 2019 we will be communicating all the above test results via text message, providing you the patient, are happy to do so. We will need an up-to-date mobile number. Please let us know at Reception if you do not wish to consent to this, or if you do not in fact have a mobile phone.
Please do not worry if we text you asking you to speak to a Doctor. THIS IS NOT URGENT.
Llantwit Major & Coastal Vale Medical Practice
We have changed the name of our partnership to Llantwit Major and Coastal Vale Medical Practice to reflect all three surgeries and the 10850 patients we serve which form our group in the coastal areas we cover.
Eryl Surgery was originally opened in 1984 and will continue to be the local address of the surgery site in Llantwit Major. We also have modern purpose-built branch surgeries in Rhoose and St Athan. All our premises have easy local parking and wheelchair access.
We pride ourselves in offering accessible high quality patient centred care. All our morning appointments are open access for booking on the same day between 8.30 -10.00. We have recently introduced My Health on Line and included some morning pre-bookable appointments and some late afternoon appointments which can be booked in advanced via this on-line system. In addition, telephone consultations are available every morning with all doctors to enable patients to access a doctor of their choice, and also to meet patient needs as we appreciate that sometimes it can be inconvenient and un-necessary for patients to attend the surgery.
We have undergone an extensive refurbishment programme at our main site in Llantwit Major and are now pleased to provide services from our modernised premises. We have extended the number of clinical consultation rooms in Llantwit Major which has enabled us to improve our delivery of primary care services. We have increased our number of call handlers to ensure that telephone calls are answered promptly at peak times between 8.30 and 9.00. My Health On-Line Appointments are available for pre-booking every day and we would encourage you to sign up to this system for both booking appointments and also ordering repeat prescriptions on-line. We hope you find the waiting area more comfortable and also enjoy the ease of access to the automated BP machines installed in all 3 practices.
The practice was presented with the Community Award 2011 by Llantwit Major Town Council in recognition of services provided by the doctors and practice staff. We are very proud of this achievement.
PLEASE NOTE ALL TELEPHONE CALLS ARE RECORDED FOR QUALITY AND TRAINING PURPOSE
