Dr Brash will retire from the practice on 31 March 2016 after 34 years, we would like to wish him a long and happy retirement. Patients will continue to be registered at the practice and do not need to take any further action.
Despite advertising widely, like many other Practices in the area, we have been unable to recruit a GP to replace his surgeries. The other partners are aiming to replace as many of his surgeries as possible but we feel we may still be struggling for appointments. We would appreciate your help and patience during this period.
If you are having difficulty getting an appointment it may be worth discussing your problems with the reception team as there may be other ways of helping you to manage your health – telephone consultations with the doctors may help, an appointment with one of our nurse prescribers may be a suitable option for minor ailments (SEE BELOW) or alternatively asking your local Community Pharmacist for advice.
Thank you for your help and support
