We are disappointed to inform you that our appeal against the UHBs decision to refuse our application for a pharmacy at Woodlands has been rejected.
We feel a great opportunity has been lost to improve upon the service we provide patients at Woodlands. The WAG supported the Cardiff & Vale UHBs view that a pharmacy at Woodlands is neither desirable or necessary.
The full decision can be seen at:
Your AM Mark Drakeford supported our appeal as your AM.
As part of the NHS cost controls you may see a change to your Oral Contraceptive. e.g. from Cerazette to CERELLE or from Micrgynon to RIGEVIDON. This change will save Cardiff & Vale UHB a potential £135,000.
Your GP will provide more advice for you.
There is also a website www.knowyourcontraceptives.co.uk where you can find out more and Download a FREE APP "My OC" which will remond you to take your oral contraceptives.
We are pleased to announce that with immediate effect that Woodlands Medical Centre will be offering a new contraceptive implant service. Nexplannon implants can be fitted by one of our experienced Doctors. The implant lasts for 3 years, and is easy to fit and remove. Please contact
Reception if you would like to make an appointment.
How would you like NO WAITING TIME to see your GP? One of the reasons you can't is because of other patients!
We lose around 60 appointments a week where patients simply fail to turn up for booked appointments. That's around 500 hours of GP time per year! If we eliminated these, we could probably guarantee an appointment within 1 or 2 days.
If you can not make an appointment then please contact us as soon as possible to cancel or rearrange. You can use the contact form to do this, in the Making An Appointment page.
We recognise this is a problem and we are working towards a resolution. We have already upgraded our telephone system and have recently been able to double our incoming lines. We have also reorganised our reception team so that we will have staff available at the busiest times to meet the demand.
To help us with this please remember to call for routine appointments after 11.00am and for blood results after 2.00pm.
Please make sure you follow the guidance in the Making an Appointment page.
