PPG Update for December 2021/January 2022




Retirement of Brenda Bateman

As previously reported, Brenda retires at the end of March. A ‘Book of Thanks’ is being organized by the Surgery staff and if you wish to contribute please collect the necessary pro-forma sheet from the Surgery and return to same in the envelope provided. The deadline for this is March 7th.

If you wish to donate to Brenda’s leaving gift then, if possible, please do this by direct transfer into the following account:

  • Account Name: Old Parsonage Surgery Patient Participation Group
  • Account Number: 30143756
  • Sort Code: 60-06-18

Cheques (made payable to Old Parsonage Surgery Patient Participation Group) will be accepted if necessary but do cost us more to process. These can be placed through the Surgery letterbox and remember to add your name and address on the back of the cheque. Please do not send cash! The deadline for contributions is Friday March 11th.


Dr Tim Skinner

Note that Dr Skinner will be leaving the Practice on January 17th and we wish him every success in the future. As there will be no immediate replacement and Dr Pace will be working alone, patients are advised they may not get an immediate appointment.


Covid Clinics:

These will continue to run in the New Year and are available for booking on Jan 5th, 12th and 30th. A massive vote of thanks is due to the PPG members and other volunteers who have assisted with the organization of the clinics thus far.


Flu Vaccinations:

Note that at present there are no vaccines available for under 65 year olds although this may yet change.
