Local Assessment Centres

We’ve changed the way GP services are being organised in North Wales to help reduce the risk of infection from COVID-19.

Local Assessment Centres have been set up to help reduce disruption to GPs and primary care services. Local Assessment Centres are not testing centers. They will not offer testing for COVID-19, and will see patients by appointment only.

Patients who need to access treatment and services should telephone their normal GP practice first to seek assistance. A healthcare professional will then call you back to discuss your care needs.

If the support requested is not related to COVID-19, you may be invited to attend your normal GP surgery or a neighbouring practice for further assistance. If it is suspected that you may have COVID-19, then you may instead be referred to one of the Local Assessment Centres listed below:

  • Holyhead (Longford House Surgery)
  • Llanfair PG (Health Centre)
  • Pwllheli (Bryn Beryl Hospital)
  • Dolgellau (Dolgellau Hospital)
  • Colwyn Bay (West End Medical Centre)
  • Rhyl (Ty Elan Surgery, branch surgery of Clarence House Medical Centre)
  • Meliden (Meliden Community Centre, branch surgery of Healthy Prestatyn Iach)
  • Denbigh (Denbigh Rugby Club)
  • Connahs Quay (The Quay Health Centre)
  • Glanrafon Medical Centre, Bradleys (Mold)
  • Flint (Flint Health and Wellbeing Centre)
  • Wrexham (Borras Park Surgery)
  • Glanfa GP Practice, Bangor
  • Llandudno Junction Leisure Centre
  • Hwb Yr Hen Ysgol Fitness Suite, Llanrwst

Patients will be given clear instructions on what to do when attending an appointment at a Local Assessment Centre to ensure the safety of each patient, their carer and the staff at the centre.

The team at the Local Assessment Centre Centre is made up of healthcare professionals already working in your local community and GP practices, and you may be seen by a GP or nurse from another practice. 

GPs across North Wales remain open, and are taking appointments by phone consultations. If you need to see your GP or access care, please phone your surgery as normal to seek assistance.
