Winch Lane Surgery is the first Practice in Wales to achieve the Quality Practice Award from the Royal College of General Practitioners.

 

The purpose-built surgery was opened in August 1991.  Its facilites includes a pleasant open-plan waiting room with a children's play area, attractive consulting rooms, a Practice Nurse treatment suite equipped for minor surgery, and good access and toilet facilities for the disabled.  The car park has ample spaces for patients.

 

The doctors operate a "personal list" system which means that whenever possible, you will be seen by your own doctor unless he or she is away on holiday, study leave etc.

 

We are always trying to improve the services that we offer.  If you have any ideas or comments which you think might be helpful, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me.
