Car y Llan
Car y Llan is a grant funded local community transport scheme operating for the benefit of Uwchaled Medical Practice and Meddygfa Betws y Coed.
The scheme provides transport from the home to the practice for those patients that have difficulty in attending their appointments due to not having their own transport.

The service is available to Uwchaled Medical Practice patients every Thursday and Friday. If you believe that you would benefit from this service please enquire at the practice. Eligibility for the service is at the discretion of the practice.
