Who should I see?

We try to keep our GP appointments for patients with more serious health problems.

Before you book an appointment to see a doctor please consider whether an appointment with our Advanced Nurse Practitioner, Pharmacist or one of our Practice Nurses might be appropriate. They can help you with a wide range of medical problems.

Our receptionists can help you decide which is the right person for you to see.

Self care

If you have a cough, cold, headache or other minor ailment try treating yourself at home first. Find out more about treatments for common minor ailments.

Please remember that self-care for common conditions can help free up our GPs’ time, making it easier to get an appointment when you have a more serious condition.

Your pharmacist can help too

Pharmacists are highly trained health professionals and can give you confidential health advice for a range of common illnesses and complaints.

You can call the Community Pharmacy in St. David’s or drop in – there’s no need to make an appointment. There are other Community Pharmacies in Haverfordwest, Goodwick and Fishguard.

Your pharmacists can also help you decide if you need to see a doctor or nurse.
