PYB Health Invests in New Information Hub
We are proud to announce the launch of this new website which has been created in the aim of making professional healthcare advice more accessible to our patients.
This website is being officially launch at a conference held at The Heronston Hotel Bridgend, on Tuesday 26th July. The site will provide information on common illness do’s and don’ts, childhood complaints and health and well-being topics including stopping smoking and diet and exercise.
New content will be added to the website every month, including regular commentary on topics from our very own General Practitioners (GPs).
We have developed the new initiative to provide patients with the support and information they need to improve and manage their own health, when they need it.
Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, the website extends our patient care beyond surgery hours. Patients can access trusted, accurate and reliable information at the click of a button.
This website also empowers patients to be better informed about health issues before they see their GP.
Dr Justine Dawkins, a GP at PYB’s Riversdale surgery commented, “Unfortunately there are only so many patients we can see in one day. This new website will extend the amount of care we are able to provide further and help patients to help themselves”.
As demand for appointments increases, using this website, PYB patients will be able to make an informed choice – do you need to see a doctor or are there small steps you can take to help yourself at home?
This website is available to patients in all six of PYB’s surgeries - Ashfield, Newcastle, Oak Tree, New Surgery Pencoed, Pencoed Medical Centre and Riversdale.
Patients are encouraged to visit the website regularly when they need support and they can of course provide feedback on the website via staff at individual surgeries.
