Dear Patient

I am going to retire from the practice on 31st March 2017.  I have known some of you since I moved to Sonning Common in August 1985 and I feel privileged to have been a GP in such a great community.  I am sad to be leaving but I am confident you will be in the care of a fine group of doctors and nurses who will continue with the personal caring spirit of the practice.

My patients are going to be allocated between two doctors, both of whom I already know and rate very highly.  Dr Claire Webster is already working in the practice and has been looking after my patients when I have been doing my other job in Oxford.  Dr Nick Smith trained as a GP with us in 2012 and has been working recently in the south of Reading.  They will both bring new skills and enthusiasm and I am confident that you will be in good hands.

The partners are going to allocate my patient list alphabetically.  My usual patients whose surnames begin A-J will be looked after by Dr Webster and my usual patients whose surnames begin K-Z will be looked after Dr Smith.  We like to try to make sure that families generally see the same doctor, so if there are different surnames in the same family that would stop this happening, please speak to reception.

The practice is going to hold an open coffee morning in Sonning Common Village Hall on Saturday 1st April 10.00-12.30 where my patients can come along to say goodbye if they wish.  Any funds raised through cake sales will be donated to Sue Ryder Home, Nettlebed.

Andrew
