Dear Patients
We are aware at times that our patients find it difficult to gain a routine appointment with a Doctor, Nurse or a Health Care Assistant within a certain timeframe.  Where such demand is unpredictable, this cannot be easily remedied.  One thing that make it even more difficult to overcome is the problem of our Did Not Attend Rates – Patients that book an appointment and don’t turn up, but don’t ring to cancel or let anyone know.
We do understand that mistakes happen and appointments can be forgotten about or overlooked.  
Please remember that if you do not attend an appointment, this may be another patients denied appointment.
Thank you for your time and hopeful co-operation with this matter

Mandatory Mask Wearing
Covid, Flu and other Respiratory infection rates are increasing in the local area. This is why we are having to re-introduce mandatory mask wearing for our patients and visitors coming into Welshpool Medical Pratice and Guilsfield Surgery, unless medically exempt. We must try and keep each other safe and well. Thank you for your hopeful co-operation.

Access & Facilities

Welshpool is our main surgery and holds the majority of our facilities although our branch surgery in Guilsfield has a well equipped consulting room. Both surgeries offer routine doctor’s appointments to patients within their respective area.

Both surgeries allow easy access for disabled patients.

Both surgeries have dispensaries where patients who live more than 1 mile away from a chemist can collect their medication.


Signposting To Other Services

There are some conditions which are better to be assessed and treated by other professionals in the community. For example, our staff may direct you to an Optician for urgent eye care issues, Dentist for any dentistry related problems or Pharmacist who are able to give free NHS advice and treatment for 27 common ailments such as back pain, diarrhoea, mouth ulcers and sore throats.

Often, these professionals can see you at an earlier time than waiting to be seen at the Surgery, or have specialist equipment that is not available at the Practice.

By signposting patients with certain conditions to other, more appropriate services, we hope to be able to provide better access to our services for those who need them.
