Welshpool surgery will be closed on October 20 and 27 as well as November 3 and 9.

"Working in partnership with the Powys Local Health Board we will be closed from 1pm on the following dates to deliver our Flu campaign," said a spokesperson.

"Our phones will be automatically transferred to our out of hours service, Shropdoc to cover your needs.

"As an alternative you can ring 01743 455364.

"A Minor Injury Service can be accessed from Welshpool Hospital.

"Normal service will resume the following day from 8am."
