Text of Petition                      

We call on the National Assembly for Wales to urge the Welsh Government to reconsider the closure of the following surgeries


Troed y Bryn in Penyrheol

Lansbury Surgery in Caerphilly


The two practices combined have a total of 3,962 registered patients.


Additional Information

If they close then it would create a knock on effect with other surgeries taking the extra patients.

Longer wait times for appointments and / or restricted access due to numbers.


There are planned housing works in the Caerphilly Borough including Caerphilly and surround, so that would increase the patient registered numbers mentioned.

This petition was considered completed by the Petitions Committee at its meeting on 12/05/2020.

Given that Lansbury and Troed y Bryn Surgeries closed on 1 May following unsuccessful efforts to recruit a new GP, and patients have been transferred to other local surgeries, the Committee agreed that there is little further action that they could take. The Committee therefore agreed to close the petition and thank the petitioner for highlighting the issue.

Full details of the consideration of this petitions by the committee and related documents can be seen on the Meetings tab above.

It was first considered by the Petitions Committee on 12/05/2020.
