All appointments must be made either through the receptionist, Ask My GP or My Health Online.

To see a doctor, please call between 08.30 and 10.30 for a morning appointment and between 13.30 and 15.00 for an afternoon appointment.

There are a limited number of afternoon appointments (specifically for medical examinations, i.e Fostering or HGV) that can be booked a few days in advance at the Glynneath Surgery only.

Note: If you have an appointment with a clinician outside these times, access is via the main entrance doors which may be locked. Please ring the intercom bell at the Main Entrance in Glynneath.

All routine doctors appointments are ten minutes. Clinic appointments may be longer.

Note: the Practice is closed for Protected Time for Learning (PT4L) on the second Wednesday in January, March, May, June, September and November.
