Welcome to Bron Derw Croeso I Fron Derw
The original practice was started in 1947 and until November 2003 was situated on Garth Road. The present building has been purpose built with all consulting rooms on the ground floor, with ample patient parking. Our premises are fully DDA compliant.
The General Practitioners in the practice are:-
Dr Lauren Kraaijeveld
Dr Nina Cakiroglu
Dr Bethan Jones
Dr Sandy Stuart
Dr Manon Gruffudd
Dr Sian Forster - on maternity leave until December 2016
Dr David Jones - covering maternity leave until December 2016
We are a training practice, and there is usually a fully qualified Registrar (sometimes two) attached to the practice. Due to commitments elsewhere in the running of General Practice Services we occasionally use the services of a locum doctor who is fully qualified in General Practice.
Foundtion 2 doctors are fully qualified doctors in their second year post graduating and spend 4 months in primary care. Some of these doctors will go on to become GP's (the future of NHS primay care) and we spend time nurturing them along these lines. They are always supervised by one of the practice GP's.
There are two Practice Nurses - Billy Elliott and Jane Ford and a Nurse Prescriber, Vicky Hughes. Vicky is able to deal with minor illness and acute problems and is able to prescribe the majority of medications available. She is the preferred opton for an appointment for such conditions as chest infections, ear infections etc.
We also have a Health Care Assistant, Glesni McAteer and Phlebotomist Ceri Jones - blood appointments are available up to 10.30am daily. Appointments must be made for these clinics. INR (Blood clotting monitoring for patients on warfarin) clinics are also held on Tuesday afternoon and Friday morning, again these appointments must be pre-booked.
The Practice Manager (Mrs Shelagh Price)is responsible for the day to day running of the practice and is supported by the Deputy Practice Manager (Mrs Sian Lewis), the Reception Manager (Mrs Sioned Williams) and a team of reception and administrative staff.
