COVID-19 antiviral and antibody treatments

Some people are now eligible to receive antiviral and antibody treatments for NHS patients at greater risk from severe COVID-19.
There are 2 ways in which you can receive antiviral treatments:
 
• as part of your standard care if you are at highest risk of severe COVID-19 and extremely vulnerable
• through a UK wide antiviral study called PANORAMIC available to COVID-19 positive patients over 50 or 18-49 with underlying health conditions
 
Antivirals will be used alongside the vaccine, which still remains our most effective tool.
Act as soon as you test positive on PCR or LFT – for more information see https://gov.wales/covid-19-treatments.

UPDATE - 05/01/2022

Positive lateral flow test result?
You no longer need to take a follow-up PCR test if you don’t have symptoms. But you must isolate for 7 days and report the result of your lateral flow test online or by calling 119.
If you have coronavirus symptoms, you should isolate and book a PCR test 👇

UPDATE 16/12/2021

Due to the increase of covid infection in the community, please do not attend the surgery unless you have a pre-booked appointment. Before attending the surgery for an appointment, you are advised to take a lateral flow test.
From tomorrow (17/12/2021) we are reverting back to using the window at the front of the surgery building for collection of prescriptions, paperwork, queries etc.
To keep our patients and staff safe we may also have to revert back to remote consultations over the coming days/ weeks.
Thankyou for your continued support and co-operation.

Message from the health board.

We have been made aware of difficulties getting through to the NHS COVID pass contact number (0300 303 5667).
The digital team at Welsh Government have advised they are aware of an intermittent problem due to the volume of traffic. The advice they are providing is to keep trying, and at different times of the day. They are investigating the capacity problem.
Patients should not be directed to their GP practice or the Health Board.

Criminals are using the NHS COVID Pass as a way to target the public by convincing them to hand over money, financial details and personal information.
 
They are sending imitation text messages, emails and making phone calls pretending to be from the NHS, and offering fake vaccine certificates for sale online and through social media.
If you are contacted about your NHS COVID Pass:
 
  1. Be alert to links and attachments in unexpected text messages or emails
     
  2. Do not respond to requests for money, passwords or financial details
     
  3. Challenge: Could it be fake?
     
  4. Use the official NHS COVID Pass website 
     
Please remember the NHS COVID pass is free.
