PRACTICE HISTORY

In the early days of general practice, the family doctor usually practised from his own living room. Two such practices existed in Prestatyn during the 1940s and 1950s. In 1962 they amalgamated and built a surgery in central Prestatyn. At that time there were five doctors in this group.

Over the next 25 years, the practice gained four more doctors and outgrew the premises, which had been adequate for the needs of the local population in the 1960s and 1970s. It was apparent by the late 1980s that building expansion had to happen, and this was carried out on the same site in 1989. The result is the current Central Surgery.

Throughout this time, we have tried to keep the family atmosphere which was very much a part of those early days. Whilst the building may be large and imposing, we aim to keep the atmosphere friendly and inviting.

Over this period of time, a network of two branch surgeries has been set up in our more outlying communities where, for one reason or another, it is difficult for much of the population to travel into central Prestatyn.

These branch surgeries do not offer the full facilities of Central Surgery, but nonetheless have been improved to offer a wider range of services.

Practice News and Notices

WE ARE VERY SORRY
We apologise for the difficulties patients are experiencing in trying to make appointments.
The practice has had extreme difficulties in attempting to replace GPs who have left.
The GPs and practice staff are under considerable pressure and we are trying our best to cope with the workload. In an attempt to manage this, we sincerely regret that patients will experience longer waiting times for appointments and GPs will have less time to spend during consultations.
The surgery has little choice but to consider cutting back on the range of the services we can provide.
This problem is also affecting other GP surgeries and is recognised nationally as a “recruitment crisis”.
The resolution of this is beyond the influence of the practice or indeed the local health board by itself. If you wish to support a sustainable GP service in Prestatyn, we would be most grateful if you could discuss this with your local politician and join the campaigns run by the BMA and the RCGP. [details below]
We appreciate your support and understanding.
On behalf of the GPs of Pendyffryn Medical  Group
