Smear Tests

This test is recommended for all women aged 25 to 64 years. Reminder letters are sent from Cervical Screening Wales every 3 years for women aged 25- 49, and every 5 years for women who are 50 – 60 years. Smears can be done either by the practice nurses or specific doctors. Please inform the receptionist so that a longer appointment may be given for this purpose.

The result will be posted to the patient’s home address from Cervical Screening Wales approximately 6-8 weeks after the test has been done.

Antenatal & Postnatal Care

If you are pregnant, please speak to reception staff. they will do a referral to the midwife and on completion of the necessary forms the midwife will arrange to see you at approximately 10 weeks for an assessment at home.

Unfortunately the hospital laboratory is unable to perform pregnancy tests, but these are available at most local pharmacies.

Family Planning & Contraception

We offer a full range of family planning in surgery by appointment with a Doctor or Practice Nurse.
