Plans are being drawn up on how 20,000 patients in a Welsh seaside town will be able to see their local GP after are two surgeries announced they were closing down as they can recruit new doctors.
Pendyffryn Medical Group and Seabank Surgery, both in Prestatyn, have given notice that they will be terminating their contract with the local Betsi Cadwaladr Health Board on the 31st March 2016.
