Important announcement - GP changes
It is with much sadness that we saying goodbye to Dr Chappelow and Dr Gilchrist at the end of November. Dr Chappelow is retiring and needless to say we will all miss her. She has worked tirelessly to improve the practice for the benefit of all. She will soon have much more time to enjoy her love of the great outdoors!
A new GP, Dr Michael Farrell will be joining us. Dr Farrell brings a wealth of experience from his time as an RAF medic and GP. He will be assuming Dr Gilchrist's sessions and we are looking forward to welcoming him to the practice.
We would like to thank Dr Gilchrist for her support over the last year.
