We had a lovely visit from Helen Stokes-Lampard Chair of the RCGP to the surgery recently.
We are very happy to welcome Dr Mandy Pegman as well as Dr Ben Herring to the practice. Ben has worked with us before several years ago for a few months and its nice to welcome him back for a few weeks a year. We are very happy to have Mandy, who is an experienced GP who comes with a poodle called Patsy and you will recognise her by her wee pink car!
Andy has now completely retired but coming back for visits. Wishing everyone a Good Yule and a peaceful New year!
A lot has happened this year, 2018. Andy is due to retire (again) . Ben Herring who joined us before, will be joining us for 4 weeks of this coming year.
We have gained the polycrub which has been a huge success. Please feel free to go in for a look.
