Significant expansion under way at Four Crosses Medical Centre
A major redevelopment is under way at Four Crosses Medical Centre in Powys to extend and improve services for local patients and provide a modern environment for service delivery.
The scheme includes an extension to the Medical Centre to increase the current facilities to 3 GP consulting rooms, create a phlebotomy and treatment room, and expand the waiting area.
Dr Mel Plant, senior partner with Llanfyllin Group Practice which runs Four Crosses Medical Centre said: “This development has been made possible through a Primary Care Improvement Grant from Welsh Government along with funding from Llanfyllin Group Practice and a generous patient donation. The practice team is delighted that we will be able to offer our patients new facilities and more services closer to home. We would also like to thank our patients and partners for their invaluable support, including the practices Patient Participation Group and local Community Councils.”
Dr Sarah Breese, GP partner with Llanfyllin Group Practice and lead GP for the project added: “Work began on our new extension last month and we aim to complete this exciting development by spring 2020. The foundations have been laid, the drains are in and the brickwork has started. During the coming weeks our patients will see the walls going up and the roof trusses in place. We do apologise that during the building schedule there will need to be some temporary changes to our services to ensure that essential work can take place as quickly and safely as possible. Patients are advised to keep checking our website for details.”

Four Crosses temporary medication collection arrangements
The temporary 2 week closure of our Four Crosses branch surgery from Monday 25th of November means that we are unable to offer a dispensary service at this site during this period.
Any prescriptions that are scheduled for collection during this 2 week period can be collected from either:
the main Llanfyllin surgery dispensary between 8.30am and 1.30pm Monday to Friday
the Premier Store (RJ&JE Lewis) petrol filling station in Llandrino (SY22 6SB) between 2.30pm and 5.30pm Monday to Friday
The Llandrinio collection site will be staffed by Llanfyllin Group Practice dispensary staff on these days, but they will only be permitted to hand out prescriptions and arrange your re-order for the following month. Any medication queries or other surgery responsibilities will be dealt with by team members at the Llanfyllin site.
Please ensure that you endeavour to collect your prescription on the day that it is due, you will have been advised of this date when you collected the previous month’s prescription. The Llandrinio site will not be able to supply any medication unless it has been pre-ordered at the previous month’s collection or through our 48 hour medication request service.
The Four Crosses branch surgery will re-open at 8.30am on Monday 9th December when normal service of the site will resume in full.
