...Our ACCESS Intentions... Help us to IMPROVE!!

As the Plas Menai Health Centre Partnership, we are intent on providing our patients with the best possible methods of accessing our service. To do this we ask for your support and understanding. …

So, what are our specific intentions in respect of ACCESS? We are intent on achieving a ‘standard’ which enables you to access our primary care service in a variety of methods, in a timely fashion and with appropriate and safe response. Our standards are specific.

They are:

Standard 1 – People receive a prompt response to their contact with a GP practice via telephone.

Standard 2 - Practices have the appropriate telephony systems in place to support the needs of people avoiding the need  

                            to call back multiple times and will check that they are handling calls in this way.

Standard 3 - People receive bilingual information on local and emergency services when contacting a practice.

Standard 4 - People are able to access information on how to get help and advice.

Standard 5 - People receive the right care at the right time in a joined up way which is based on their needs.

Standard 6 - People can use a range of options to contact their GP practice.

Standard 7 - People are able to email a practice to request a non-urgent consultation or a call back.

Standard 8 - Practices understand the needs of people within their practice and use this information to anticipate the    

                            demand on its services.

…So, what do we ask of you to help ACHIEVE these standards?

  • We recognise that in order to achieve the standards set we require your support and ask that you work with us to improve access into our service – for this to happen we specifically ask that:
  • You register to ‘My Health Online’ in order to be able to pre-book appointments;
  • Support our efforts to improve;
  • You complete our online ‘Access’ survey to feedback to us, anonymously, your thoughts – you can access this at this link Click
  • To engage with our Patient Engagement Group [PEG] should you have any specific matters that you wish to raise – you can do this by email at: plasmenaiPEGChair@gmail.com



The Plas Menai Health Centre Partnership would like to thank all our patients

for the kind suggestions, comments and compliments that have

been placed with us in the last couple of weeks - we thought

it would be of interest to have them on this website with

our responses to each.

Again, thank you and the very best wishes and good health for 2020.


1. Why not have a "rate your doctor" scheme?   

PMHC Response:

Thank you for the suggestion and what an excellent idea, however, I suspect the doctors may understandably suggest otherwise. 

There is no contractual requirement for doctors to oblige in such a scheme and it may be rather counterproductive. 

I think our best preference would be to have some soft compliments or suggestions placed with us if any patients wished to comment about their service, whether good or indifferent.

2. When I phoned for a pharmacist appointment, it took time to get 13th in queue.  I waited through this and pressed for prescriptions from the menu.  By the time I waited and queued again, I was too late to get an appointment and was not offered a doctors appointment.  I went almost a week without medication.  Option 1 on the menu serves no useful purpose.   

PMHC Response:

Thank you for your submission. We are currently looking at ways of introducing different forms of access that may help with the way in which people connect with the Health Centre. 

Sometimes the phones do become overly busy and we are conscious of that. In respect of medication - you may be aware that we have a number of clinical staff who can now prescribe

so maybe an appointment with a doctor was not in fact needed on this occasion. I would recommend that you consider using the "My Health Online" facility. This will support your repeat medication needs and will reduce the requirement for you to come into the surgery - in time the option to book appointments will also be made available on this system so maybe now is a good time to get registered. If you call into the surgery or contact us direct then we can advise you on how best to register.

3. Just to say "thank you".  You do a difficult job looking after the health of our community at a time. when there are shortages in nurses/doctors and the NHS is under funded generally.  So thanks, have a good weekend.   

PMHC Response:

Thank you for your compliment - we are very appreciative that patients are aware of our challenges and the intent that we have to provide as good a service as possible.

4. I have now attended 3 appointments at Plas Menai.  On all 3 I have been unable to park in the ONE disabled bay as someone has parked there and not displayed their blue badge.  I have raised this with the people on reception on 3 occasions.   

PMHC Response:

Thank you for your comment.  We are mindful that on certain occasions the area designated for disabled parking is used by all.  It's a difficult matter to police and we do rely a great deal on the considerations of patients not to park in the area designated for use by those holding  "Blue Badge" Permits.  We have ample parking areas to the rear and the car park itself is only full on a couple of occasions for a short time during the day.

5. We would just like to say we think Judith, Kevin and Nicky deserve a xmas bonus for all their hard work they do.   

PMHC Response:  Thank you for your kind comment.  the partnership value all our staff and we are hopeful that all we do for them extends beyond a once a year bonus.

New staff joining our team..!!

The first is Dr Jens Foell.  Dr. Foell returns with his Welsh family to the local area and we are pleased to have him now on board as one of our salaried doctors. His working activities involve general practice and GPSI sessions in musculoskeletal medicine. He has until recently held the post providing undergraduate teaching at Imperial College London.  His interests as a GP and academic are pain medicine, mental health and education.

Dr Jens trained in Germany in Rehabilitation Medicine and has successfully integrated these hands-on skills into the work in General Practice. ‘Hands-on treatments have always fascinated me and studying in Berlin provided plenty of stimulation, seeing different social and political systems’.  Welcome Dr Jens!!

Also, we are pleased to announce that Charlotte Gregory has returned to the Health Centre as a Nurse Practitioner and will be taking forward the developments of our ‘First Point of Contact’ Minor Illness Clinic.  Charlotte, who is able to prescribe will be working four days a week and will be able to deal with those minor illness matters taking much of the strain and demand away from the GPs.  Welcome back Charlotte!


Staff newydd yn ymuno â’n tîm..!!

Y cyntaf yw Dr Jens Foell.  Mae Dr Foell yn dychwelyd gyda’i deulu Cymraeg i’r ardal leol ac rydym yn falch o’i gael yma fel un o’n meddygon cyflogedig. Mae’n gweithio fel meddyg teulu ac yn cynnal sesiynau arbenigol mewn meddygaeth gyhyrysgerbydol. Tan yn ddiweddar roedd yn gweithio yn Imperial College, Llundain, yn dysgu myfyrwyr israddedig.  Ei ddiddordebau fel meddyg teulu ac academydd yw meddygaeth trin poen, iechyd meddwl ac addysg.

Cafodd Dr Jens ei hyfforddi mewn Meddygaeth Adsefydlu yn yr Almaen ac mae wedi integreiddio’r sgiliau ymarferol hyn i’w waith fel meddyg teulu. ‘Mae triniaethau ymarferol wedi mynd â’m bryd i erioed ac roedd astudio yn Berlin yn ddiddorol tu hwnt, yn rhoi cyfle i weld gwahanol systemau cymdeithasol a gwleidyddol.’  Croeso De Jens!!

Hefyd, rydym yn falch o gyhoeddi bod Charlotte Gregory wedi dychwelyd i’r Ganolfan Iechyd fel Ymarferydd Nyrsio. Bydd hi’n symud y gwaith o ddatblygu ein Clinig Mân Anhwylderau ‘Pwynt Cyswllt Cyntaf’ ymlaen.  Bydd Charlotte, sy’n gallu rhoi presgripsiynau, yn gweithio bedwar diwrnod yr wythnos a bydd yn gallu delio â’r materion hynny yn ymwneud â mân anhwylderau, gan dynnu llawer o’r straen a'r galw oddi ar y meddygon teulu.  Croeso’n ôl Charlotte!
