Temporary change for patients of Neyland and Johnson GP Surgery

Hywel Dda COVID update

Patients registered with Neyland and Johnston GP Practice who need to access its services over the next few days are advised that the practice is operating a limited service currently with support from neighbouring practices and Hywel Dda University Health Board.

This is a temporary change introduced by the practice to protect patients and staff following a small number of administrative staff who have tested positive for COVID-19.

Both Neyland Surgery and Johnston Surgery are closed temporarily for a decontamination deep clean. The practice is working very closely with Public Health Wales and Hywel Dda University Health Board to reinstate services as quickly as possible. Patients requiring a prescription are asked to contact their regular pharmacy in the first instance to arrange a temporary supply.

Patients who need to see a GP or nurse in person should contact the surgery on the usual number and appropriate arrangements will be put in place.

Jill Paterson, Director of Primary Care, Community and Long Term Care for Hywel Dda University Health Board said: “We understand this is a worrying time for people and we want to reassure patients, staff and the public that all the appropriate contact tracing and infection control arrangements are in place to protect patients and staff.”

Please remember, if you need to go out, keep your distance (2 metres), wash your hands regularly and wear a face covering where required.
