Mwgwd Wyneb

Er nad yw bellach yn ofyniad cyfreithiol, mae Llywodraeth Cymru a Bwrdd Iechyd Hywel Dda yn argymell parhau i wisgo mwgwd wyneb mewn lleoliadau gofal iechyd.

Byddwn yn parhau i gefnogi ein cleifion a’r cyhoedd i wisgo mwgwd wyneb wrth dod i fewn i’r feddygfa. Bydd cyflenwad ar gael yn y cyntedd.

Os nad yw eich clinigwr yn gwisgo mwgwd wyneb a'ch bod yn teimlo'n fwy cyfforddus a nhw yn gwneud, plis gofynnwch.

Bydd yn ofynnol o hyd i staff, cleifion ac ymwelwyr mewn ardaloedd sy'n delio ag achosion hysbys neu amheus o COVID-19 ar rhai a heintiau anadliadol eraill wisgo mwgwd wyneb yn unol â chanllawiau atal a rheoli heintiau.

Lle mae grwpiau penodol o gleifion yn parhau i fod mewn perygl uwch o gael COVID-19, mae ein hasesiad risg wedi penderfynnu bod angen i’r claf a’r clinigwr wisgo mwgwd wyneb fel y gallwn barhau i amddiffyn ein rhai sydd mwyaf agored i niwed yn glinigol.

Cofiwch lanweithio eich dwylo wrth fynd i mewn i’r adeilad a chyn mynd i fewn i ystafell y clinigwr.

 Diolch i chi am eich cydweithrediad ac ystyriaeth.

Face Masks

Although no longer a legal requirement, both Welsh Government and Hywel Dda Health Board are recommending the continued wearing of face coverings in health care settings.

We will continue to support our patients and the general public to wear masks when entering the surgery.  A supply will be made available in the foyer.

If your clinician is not wearing a face mask and you feel more comfortable with them doing so, please ask.

Staff, patients, and visitors in areas that are dealing with known or suspected cases of COVID-19 and other respiratory infections will continue to be required to wear face masks in line with infection prevention and control guidance.

 

Where certain groups of patients remain at higher risk of acquiring COVID-19, our risk assessment has determined that face masks are required to be worn by the patient and clinician so we can continue to protect our most clinically vulnerable.

 

Please remember to sanitise your hands on entering the building and prior to entering the clinician’s room.

 

Thank you for your co-operation and consideration.


Contraception Clinic

We are pleased to confirm that out contraception clinic will be resuming.

This is a drop in clinic running at 5pm to 5.30pm on Mondays only, no appointments are booked in advance. 

When you arrive, report to reception.

Patients are seen first come first serve basis.

New Data Protection Regulations from May 2018 (GDPR)

What is GDPR?

GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulations and is a new piece of legislation that will supersede the Data Protection Act. It will not only apply to the UK and EU; it covers anywhere in the world in which data about EU citizens is processed. GDPR is a new law that determines how your personal data is processed and kept safe, and the legal rights that you have in relation to your own data. The GDPR is similar to the Data Protection Act (DPA) 1998 (which the practice already complies with), but strengthens many of the DPA’s principles.

The regulation applies from the 25th May 2018 and will apply even after the UK leaves the EU.

Please see patient leaflet below for further information.
