Know your Primary Choice.

Primary care services provide the first point of contact in the healthcare system, acting as the ‘front door’ of the NHS. Primary care includes general practice, community pharmacy, dental and optometry (eye health) services.

In Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan, we have the Primary Care team - your local team of Primary Care Specialists for the counties.

By seeing the right person for your healthcare needs (N.B this may not be your local GP) you will save yourself time and receive the best advice, care and treatment.

If you’re unsure which member of the Primary Care team is the best person for you to see, please read below and meet the team.

You would typically visit your community pharmacist if you have a minor illness like coughs, colds, diarrhoea or headaches or need advice on medications. You can find your nearest pharmacy using our local Health Service Directory.
