About Us

Dr Dewi Griffiths (GMC Registration Number 7017361) is our sole GP at present, work  to provide medical services under the ‘General Medical Services Contract’ to Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board.

We have a practice population of 2300 patients and serve a wide rural area which lies within an 8-10 mile radius of Cerrigydrudion.

We are located in a traditional Welsh heartland and this is reflected in our beliefs and our commitment to the language and culture.

Dispensing

We are a dispensing doctor’s practice.  The unique benefits of being a dispensing practice is that we can provide access to medicines and general healthcare under one roof.

Only patients who live remotely from a community pharmacy are eligible to receive dispensing services from a dispensing doctor.  95% of our patients are eligible for our dispensing service.

Patients living within 1 mile of a pharmacy cannot use our dispensing service and must obtain their medicines from their nearest pharmacy.
