It means that Dr Swarna Bhat who has been working as a single-handed GP in Ynysybwl will now be joining us as a Partner in Eglwysbach, and that Ynysybwl Surgery will become a branch surgery of Eglwysbach. We feel this merge offers us many potential benefits into the future for developing the practice in terms of recruitment, services offered to patients as well as increased resilience to pressures beyond our control.
During this past year of collaborative working, we do not feel there has been any negative effects on the care we offer our Eglwysbach & Tonteg patients, and please be assured, we have had the full support and backing of both the local University Health Board, as well as the Community Health Council in implementing these changes. We have also recruited a new GP, Dr Sarah Phillips, in anticipation of these changes.
If you have any queries regarding these developments, please get in touch with our Practice Manager, but rest assured we shall endeavour to continue offering the high quality service that you and your family expect.
