Online Engagement Event - 6pm to 7pm

Join at 6pm on Monday 30 January via this event link.

Powys Teaching Health Board has received an application from Crickhowell Group Practice to close their Belmont Branch Surgery in Gilwern.

The main reasons for the application are:

  • The forthcoming retirement of four GP partners who are the owners of the branch surgery premises, with lack of viable alternatives for transfer of ownership.
  • Challenges across the UK to recruit and retain general medical practitioners (GPs).

The Health Board has therefore implemented its Branch Practice Review Process, which includes:

  • Receiving and reviewing the application from the practice.
  • Sharing information with patients and wider stakeholders to seek your views.
  • Engaging with the Community Health Council, which is the statutory body to represent the interest of patients and the public.
  • Conscientious consideration of the feedback we receive, and taking this into account when making a decision on the application at a meeting in public of Powys Teaching Health Board.

This period of engagement is taking place from 10 January 2023 to 6 March 2023.
