Press Release Sennybridge Health Centre
Posted on 24 May 2019
Date: 24th May 2019
WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT
It is with regret the Partners of Brecon Medical Group Practice wish to inform the Sennybridge local communities that the partnership can no longer continue to permit the opening of the Sennybridge premises to patients in the afternoons.
This decision has been taken following a recent incident and it is in the interests of ensuring the health and safety of clinicians, employees and patients of the practice.
A risk assessment has been undertaken together with consideration of deterrents and security measures. Consultation has taken placed with the Community Health Council, Powys Teaching Heath Board & Patient Participation Group.
The change to the service provision will mean that patients will no longer be able to collect their medication during the afternoons from the Health Centre.
Patients who require advice or urgent medication, are advised that services will be available from the main surgery in Brecon.
We would like to thank the members of the Patient Participation Group and the local community for their support and understanding with this change. We can confirm that advertisements will be placed on the Practice Website, Media boards and within key premises in the local community.
Signed on behalf of GP partners at Brecon Medical Group Practice
