Husband and wife GPs convicted of drink-driving are still licensed to practise medicine

Henry and Nia Holland received driving bans last month after being caught behind the wheel under the influence of alcohol

Conviction: Henry and Nia Holland

Husband and wife GPs who received drink-driving bans are still licensed to practise medicine - despite their convictions.

Henry and Nia Holland received driving bans last month after being caught behind the wheel under the influence of alcohol.

The General Medical Council, which holds the record of all licensed doctors in the United Kingdom, said both were still fully registered to practise, the Daily Post reports.

A spokesman for GMC said both doctors remain on the register, despite Dr Nia Holland being found to be twice the legal limit behind the wheel in February, and Dr Henry Holland being arrested while on his way to work at 7.30am.

The spokesman said: “In general terms, fitness to practice hearings can take some time to be decided if an investigation results in a hearing.”

Dr Henry Holland failed a roadside breathalyser on Tuesday, June 2, on his way to his surgery in Caernarfon.

He was found to have 50 microgrammes (mg) of alcohol per 100ml of breath - over the legal limit of 35mg.

Doctors: The Hollands are still fully licensed to practise medicine

He was the first person arrested by North Wales Police as part of a region-wide crackdown.

Dr Nia Holland was found guilty of the same offence after a driver found her slumped over the wheel of her car in February before she sped off, swerving on the road.

The member of the public then contacted North Wales Police with his concerns.

Police tracked her down to her address and administered a breathalyser which she failed.

The couple, both of Garth, Llanwnda, have been banned from driving for 12 months and 18 months respectively.

In both cases, the courts heard the married couple struggled with the illness and subsequent death of Dr Henry Holland’s father.

A spokesman for the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service, which is responsible for independent decisions about a doctor’s fitness to practise, said: “We have not had a referral for a hearing.”

He added that investigations can sometimes take up to a month.

When Dr Nia Holland was arrested, she was a GP at Meddygfa Penbryn in Llanfairpwll, but is understood to now be working as a locum.

Dr Henry Holland has been a GP at Bron Seiont surgery in Caernarfon since 1987.

Excuse the 'pun', but she looks pretty 'pissed'! (at getting 'caught'!!)

If only 'our' doctor, Nia, was two stones heavier and with a bigger bust, people would have been more sympathetic. (i'm sure.)

'Everybody, picking on her', because of her 'looks'!

'It's just not fair'

'Doctor, i've come to collect my prescription'

'Ah yes, Jean, 2 pints of lager and a whiskey chaser, to be taken 10 times a day, wasn't it?'

'Oh, please don't drive, my wife is pretty pissed off, and driving on a pavement............somewhere'
