Practice Profile

On 1st October 2018, the GP Practices at Stanwell Surgery and Station Road Surgery merged to form a single practice called Penarth Healthcare Partnership.

All Healthcare Services have been relocated to the new practice based at Stanwell Surgery. We are fully committed to the new partnership and look forward to the future and the provision of an improved service to all our patients.

We provide suitable access for all disabled patients at the Surgery.

Our Aims

We are fully committed to providing quality medical care services for the local population, in a friendly and professional manner.

You can help us achieve our aim by following the advice in this site to ensure that appropriate services can be provided when you most need them.

Research

About Our Services

Our Doctors work together in partnership with the other members of the healthcare team to provide the best possible medical care for our patients. Together, we have a contract with Cardiff & Vale University Health Board and are contracted to provide, as part of its core services:

  • management of patients who are ill or believe themselves to be ill, with conditions from which recovery is generally expected, for the duration of that condition, including relevant health promotion advice and referral as appropriate, reflecting patient choice wherever practicable;
  • general management of patients who are terminally ill;
  • management of chronic disease in the manner determined by the practice, in discussion with the patient.

We have a contract with the Health Board to provide additional services for:

  • cervical screening;
  • contraceptive services including implant and coils (IUD);
  • vaccinations and immunisations;
  • child health surveillance;
  • maternity services.

In addition, we provide Enhanced Services that include more specialised services undertaken by GPs or nurses with special interests and allied health professionals and other services at the primary-secondary care interface. They may also include services addressing specific local health needs or requirements, and innovative services that are being piloted and evaluated.

We have Practice Protocols in place for certain common conditions. If you are advised to take certain actions to improve or maintain your health please bear in mind that these protocols will have been devised by the doctors. This may include how to self treat colds or flu or it may be health advice given by the nurses or the health care assistant.

Referral for Further Treatment & Investigation

If the Doctor feels it necessary, you may be referred to a specialist Doctor at a clinic or hospital. The Doctor will send a letter to the specialist with the full details of your problem and an appointment will be made by the hospital or clinic for you to be seen. You will usually be notified of this in writing or by telephone.

If your problem does not warrant an urgent appointment with the specialist, you may have to wait a long time to be seen. The Practice can also refer you to be seen privately, if you prefer, to help you get an appointment more quickly. Please note that there is no additional charge by the Practice for referring you privately, but you will be charged by the specialist for his or her private fees (unless you have private medical insurance).

When you are seen by the specialist, all medical details are sent back to the Practice by letter so that the Doctor is fully aware of what treatment you will be given.

If you have been referred to see an NHS hospital consultant you can find out how long you are likely to have to wait to be seen by phoning the waiting list coordinator for the hospital on:

  • Llandough Hospital – 029 2071 6757
  • University Hospital of Wales (Heath) – 029 2074 8181
  • Barry Hospital – 01446 704058
