Our staff work with the GPs to provide patients with help and advice, but their work can sometimes be difficult.
Please remember that if you are kept waiting or seem to be asked irritating questions our staff are carrying out our instructions to ensure the practice is run smoothly.
The practice employs approximately 24 staff members who can be identified by their uniforms. Our staff may vary as the practice needs change. Presently staff are as follows:
We have two ANP's (Advanced Nurse Practitioners) in Holyhead, Gail Newbold and Mai Hughes who are both fully qualified and competent in seeing patients as emergencies with certain conditions, the Receptionists will be able to advise you as to whether your emergency complaint will be able to be dealt with by the ANP's.
The practice manager manages the day-to-day activities of the practice and has financial responsibility for practice accounts.
We have receptionists at the three surgeries whose role is to assist patient services and administration. Their duties include making appointments, arranging repeat prescription collection, filing and retrieval of medical records.
These staff members work from our Bodedern and Valley surgeries and provide administrative, reception and dispensing support to the partners, patients and primary health care team.
Our secretaries provide a full range of secretarial support to the practice together with general administration work for clinics.
Our nurses are recognised by their blue nurses’ uniforms and provide a range of valuable services including running clinics, arranging vaccinations, offering health advice and blood testing. Their names and qualifications are as follows:
||RGN, Registered Midwife

General Practitioner Trainees/Students
Our practice is a training/teaching practice. Our trainee doctors are fully qualified and have a great deal of hospital experience. Trainee doctors are attached to our practice for six to twelve months and patients find their fresh, enthusiastic approach adds to the health care we provide. The trainee doctors usually become General Practitioner partners after completing their training, and are at all times encouraged to seek advice when required from the practice partners.
When booking an appointment you may be asked if you would like to consult with one of our trainee doctors. Our trainees are excellent doctors, appointed by the practice. We are confident that they will give our patients modern, effective and caring treatment.
We are fortunate to also have medical students attached for short periods to our practice. With the patient’s consent, they may be present at consultations with the partners and learn about general practice.
Student nurses are also attached to the nursing staff at times.
