Phlebotomy (Blood Test) Update – 23/08/2021
Unfortunately, due to a worldwide shortage of blood bottles Phlebotomist appointments are now URGENT ONLY and can only be arranged by a Clinician at the Surgery.
If you have a blood form from the hospital we will not be able to take these bloods at the surgery. They will need to be done at the hospital.
Although we do not have a definitive time as to when this global supplier issue will be resolved, we hope to resume normal blood testing services as soon as possible.
Effective 23rd July 2020, all patients (aged 11 years and over) entering the Surgery premises are required to wear a face mask.
Please make sure you have your face mask with you before leaving home.
Important Please Read - Effective Monday 16th March 2020.
In order to protect the patients and staff at Penylan Surgery from further spread of the Coronavirus, until further notice we are no longer offering ‘walk in’ appointments or allowing patients to book GP appointments.
Please do not queue outside the Surgery as you will not be offered an appointment.
If you need to see a GP please ring the Surgery on the usual number 02920 498181, our Receptionists will take full details and one of our GPs will call you back with an appointment time or, where possible, with telephone advice.
For the moment Nurse appointments are going ahead but we ask that you ring and cancel your appointment if you are not feeling well.
Please check our website regularly for any updates.

Telephone helpline for families needing Health Visitor advice during COVID
The Health Visitor (HV) telephone helpline is staffed by a group of experienced HV’s who will be available to provide advice and signpost parents/carers with pre-school children across Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan.
This service will commence on Tuesday 14th of April 2020 and be available Monday to Friday from 9.00am - 5.00pm. We recognise that families will be anxious during the current COVID-19 pandemic and therefore we are ensuring that access to HV advice is readily available for all our families during this period.

NEW SYSTEM FOR MATERNITY REFERRALS FOR BOOKING WITH COMMUNITY MIDWIVES
In response to women and Community Midwives being unable to access the GP surgeries to complete a Maternity Booking Referral form we have set up an online system for women to inform the Community Midwives that they are pregnant. The email address will be checked regularly.
How does it work:
- Women send an email to the designated email address. Birthafterthoughts.firstname.lastname@example.org
- They receive an automatic response with the referral form attached.
- They complete the form online and return it to the same email address.
- They will be contacted within a week by a Community Midwife who will then arrange a telephone booking appointment when they are 8-10 weeks pregnant.
This information is on the Cardiff and Vale UHB website and the Cardiff and Vale UHB Maternity Services Facebook page.
