Newport Medical Group

Hello and welcome to the website of the Newport Medical Group. Here you will find a great deal of useful information in a very easy to use format about all three sites that make up the group. The site also has the added benefit of several online functions. If you’re new to the area, have a look at our opening times, download a registration form and come and see us.


As part of our response to COVID-19 and in light of the increased transmissibility of the new variant, Omicron, we have made some key changes to how we are currently working.

The measures described below are in line with national guidance and ensures we can continue to provide care whilst keeping our patients and staff safe.

All appointments will now be telephone or video based first, with face-to-face appointments offered where there is a clinical need to do so. This helps to ensure that patients are only attending the practice in person if absolutely necessary, keeping everyone as safe as possible.

When you call to book an appointment, you may be asked a series of questions around what you’re calling for. This will be to ensure you are directed to the most appropriate service or health professional for your condition, so please do provide as much detail as you can.

For those who are invited to attend our practice in person, please be assured that we are continuing to follow strict infection control and social distancing measures to keep you as safe as possible. As part of this, we ask that you wear a face covering at all times whilst in the practice. If you have any COVID-19 symptoms, have 22 December 2021 4 received a positive PCR test result or if you meet the criteria for self-isolation, please do not attend.

Given the significant demand our services are currently experiencing, and following the national ask to clinically prioritise the most urgent services such as vaccines, urgent care, immunisations, cancer and high risk patients, some of our routine services may not be available as quickly as you are used to. We apologise for any inconvenience but assure you that we are working hard to provide care in the safest and most effective ways.

Don’t forget, you can download the NHS App or use online services for things like prescriptions or other healthcare needs. You can also use 111.nhs.uk or call 111 for urgent but non-life threatening concerns. Your local pharmacy is also available to support with minor conditions or to provide further advice.

Patient Participation Group

 

A Patient Participation Group (PPG) is a group of patients, carers and practice staff who meet to discuss practice issues and patient experience to help improve the service. The role of the PPG includes: being a critical friend to the practice, advising the practice on the patient perspective and providing insight into the responsiveness and quality of services, encouraging patients to take greater responsibility for their own and their family’s health, carrying out research into the views of those who use the practice, organising health promotion events and improving health literacy and regular communication with the patient population.
