Parking at the surgery?  Parking in the Pay & Display car park is the responsibility of the patient and if you are kept waiting for an appointment,  you will need to ensure that you top up the meter accordingly. Please speak to a receptionist and let them know you've left the surgery to top up your parking.  Unfortunately the surgery can no longer provide letters of support for any penalty ticket appeal.

At Medwyn Surgery we have developed this statement of aims and objectives so patients can know what to expect from the practice.

  4. We will treat everyone with respect and dignity and involve patients in decision making about their treatment and care.
  5. We aim to communicate clearly and regularly with our patients using a range of media and to invite ongoing feedback.
  6. We aim to retain our ability to be an independent advocate for our patients and to meet our professional obligations as a doctor first, irrespective of contractual arrangements or commissioning responsibilities. We intend to remain at the heart of our patients’ community, supporting self-sufficiency and developing communities as health resources.
