Dr Watson Retirement
As some of you may already know, Dr Jeremy Watson has taken the very difficult decision to retire at the end of July. After 27 years of dedicated care for the patients of The Old Parsonage Surgery Jeremy feels it is now time to spend more time with his family and potter in his garden.
In these challenging times recruitment into General Practice is proving very difficult across the country.
We are fortunate to have Dr. Tim Skinner joining the practice as a permanent doctor on September 1st. I am sure we will welcome Tim into the village in the same way as we did Jeremy all those years ago. There will almost certainly be some changes in order to accomodate the increasing demands on General Practice but i do hope with our community support this huge transition is as smooth as possible for Vicky and her team and of course our patients.
In closing, i am sure we would all want to wish Jeremy and Jessica many happy times ahead.
