Dr Jacqueline Holdaway
BSc, MBBCh, DRCOG, DFSRH
(1996 University Wales)
I joined the practice in 2001, after completing GP training on the Mid Sussex GP vocational training scheme . Prior to that, I trained in Accident and Emergency but felt General Practice offered a special relationship with patients and their families as well as still being able to see a diverse spectrum of medicine.
My special interests include Women’s Health, Paediatrics, and ENT. I am an accredited provider of intrauterine contraception and subdermal contraception. In 2014, I set up a micro suction service to improve local access for this procedure and perform a monthly clinic for patients with ear disorders who otherwise need to attend hospital for it.
I am GP lead in Gynaecology, COPD and Asthma. I am also the GP prescribing lead, and attend regular locality prescribing meetings and head up prescribing audit work within the practice for the Coastal West Sussex Prescribing management team.
I am married to Nigel, I have 2 wonderful children and my time away from the practice is spent with them, ferrying them around to the usual round of cricket rugby gymnastics scouts rainbows etc.. I am also a keen baker, which I find truly relaxing and enjoy supporting local events with my cakes and bakes.
Being a GP in Primary care is a challenging, often exhausting role but a real privilege to care and support our patients.
