New Patients


Our Practice boundary covers the following areas: Cross Inn, Penygawsi, Talbot Green, Miskin, Pontyclun, Tylagarw, Brynsadler, Talygarn and Llanharry.

You will need to complete a new patient questionnaire, as well as our registration forms  - these are available at the surgery.

Once you have been accepted as a patient, your medical records will be transferred to the practice and you will be sent a new medical card. Your medical records may take several weeks to arrive at the practice.

If you are on regular medication, please make a 20 minute appointment with our Practice Pharmacist once you have signed up. This will allow our doctors to stay on top of your health care needs.

If English is not your first language, the practice has access to interpreters. Please inform reception staff and this assistance can be provided.

Temporary Patient Registrations

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.   IF YOU LIVE LOCALLY WE WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU TO STILL SEE YOUR OWN GP AS THEY HOLD YOUR FULL MEDICAL RECORDS.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.

Non-English Speakers

These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.

Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.

Disabled Patient Facilities

Wheelchair access to both surgeries is through the main door. A disabled patients WC is provided off the waiting room of both surgeries. Both surgeries have a loop system available in order to aid communication with patients who have suitable hearing aids. Please note that both practices use an electronic notice board to call patients into the consulting rooms, if you are not able to see the board clearly then please inform the receptionist when you arrive at the surgery and arrangements will be made to inform you when the doctor is ready for you.

If you have any disabilities that you think we should be aware of then please let us know.
