St David's Surgery to return General Medical Services contract

22 April 2024

Hywel Dda University Health Board is working together with St David’s Surgery in North Pembrokeshire to ensure that GP services will continue to be provided in the area following the resignation of the surgery’s General Medical Services Contract.

The decision to resign the Contract with the Health Board was made by the single-handed GP Partner.

Jill Paterson, Director of Primary Care, Community and Long Term Care for Hywel Dda, said: “We would like to reassure the patients of St David’s Surgery that the provision of these important services will continue for patients.

“We will be working closely with St David’s Surgery and the wider Cluster to find the best way to secure services for patients.”

For registered patients this means that care will continue to be provided as normal by the same team in the Practice until the end of October 2024. Patients are being advised to remain registered with the Practice while longer-term plans are developed.

The Health Board will be writing to all patients registered at St David’s Surgery to inform them of the situation.

Meanwhile, patients will be invited to share their views as to how these services can continue to be delivered after the end of October.

Ms Paterson continued: “The views of the local community and patients will be gathered before any decision is made about the long-term provision for the Service. There will be opportunities to speak to the Health Board at a public engagement event more details of which are to follow.”

“The Health Board will continue to work closely with the Peninsula Working Group established last year, whose membership includes community representatives from St David’s and Solva, and also Llais in order to ensure the high standards of care currently provided continue for patients of this Surgery.

“We very much appreciate the continuing support given by the community to the team at St David’s Surgery throughout this challenging period.”
