Nafeza 2 world - St Davids Surgery is the fourth to hand back its contract in the Hywel Dda area since 2022.

Solva Surgery, which is just three miles away, also relinquished its contract in March 2023. That practice has about 2,145 patients, according to the health board's latest figures.

It is currently staffed by salaried GPs and locum doctors and run by the health board.

Jill Paterson, director of primary care, community and long term care at Hywel Dda, said a resolution is being sought.

She said: “We would like to reassure patients of St Davids GP Surgery that we are working to find a sustainable solution for the provision of services following the resignation of the General Medical Services contract, which comes to an end in October.

“We are keen to hear from as many patients as possible about those things which matter most in terms of such an important service in the area.

"There are a number of ways that patients who are registered with St Davids Surgery can have their say on the future of services, including the drop-in event at St Davids City Hall," Ms Paterson added.
