Former Cae Teg Patients
Llanyravon Surgery would like to welcome all the new patients who have been transferred to our Surgery from the former Cae Teg Practice.
Following the closure of Cae Teg, patients who live in certain parts of Llantarnam, Croesyceiliog and Cwmbran Town Centre have been allocated to us and we will be working closely to try to elevate any concerns and reduce anxiety that may be caused with the transfer and to make the transition as easy as we possibly can.
No two surgeries work the same and every surgery has their own way of running their clinics, emergency and routine appointments, and ways in which they contact their patients, there will obviously be changes with how this is done.
On this page you will find a guide and information about Llanyravon Surgery. You can also have a look at our practice leaflet, which you can download for future reference

These are also available in other format please enquire at the Practice
Obviously, the coronavirus pandemic has affected all our lives, and has changed the way in which we normally operate. We have had to make some changes to how the practice operates to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. Please do not attend the surgery in person unless you have been asked to attend at which stage you will be given instructions on where to present when you arrive. You will be asked questions to screen for coronavirus, before being allowed into the building.
You will be triaged before entering the Surgery by a Healthcare Professional and asked some basic questions. Please maintain your social distance and avoid touching rails, door handles etc
Llanyravon surgery is situated at Llanyravon Way, Cwmbran NP44 8HW. (Opposite the school)

Lack of transport or other inconvenience is not a valid reason for a house call. In such cases, you may be offered a review at the surgery at short notice, if appropriate.
