This website is for existing patients and those considering registering with us. It tells you about our services, how to access them and some general information about how our practice operates.
Our Practice accommodates disabled access. The surgery has a ramp for wheelchair access and toilet facilities for disabled people. There is a hearing loop available at reception.
|Ty’r Felin Surgery works with other practices in the same geographic area as part of the Llwchwr Community Cluster Network and have GP representation through Dr James Kerrigan and managerial representation through Mrs Michelle Gray. |
The Practices, through a co-operative approach via a range of multidisciplinary healthcare workers and third party agencies, use specialist skills and shared resources to improve health and education across the locality.
The network meet on a regular basis to discuss and commission services that would be considered beneficial for the patients living in Llwchwr. Initiatives in recent years have included providing the practices with a shared prescribing pharmacist, improved access to mental health resources & counselling, rapid testing for bacterial chest infection in practices and access to physiotherapy closer to home.
The physiotherapy scheme is due to be replaced with an osteopathy scheme (temporarily on hold with the COVID-19 pandemic) that will allow a great number of patients to receive treatment for musculoskeletal conditions in the community.
The cluster network is also involved in the Welsh Government Transformation project for Primary Care and planned schemes for 2020 and 2021 include an improved heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) programme for patients, improved access to diagnostic echocardiograms (ultrasound scans of the heart), community clinic assessment of potential sleep apnoea cases, a shared mental health practitioner for all practices and additional full time multidisciplinary team members for each practice.

|Our surgery is a training practice which means hospital doctors wanting to enter general practice spend 6 or 12 months with us in order to gain the experience they need to become family doctors. As a training practice, you may be offered a consultation with one of these doctors, known as GP Registrars, and your medical records may be used for educational purposes.|
We often have Swansea Graduate-Entry Medical Students observing and assisting our surgeries. These students work under full supervision of one of our GPs and often patients enjoy the perspective they bring.
