After more than 20 years working as a GP partner at The Meadows Dr Robert Clark has retired from the partnership. He will continue in his role as a GP appraiser and may be available to do clinical sessions in the future but he is taking a complete break from general practice for now.
As you may know Rob reduced his clinical sessions to 2 days per week over a year ago and we appointed Dr Robert Kidway to take over for the 3 days per week that he was not working.
We are delighted to announce that we have appointed Dr Phoebe Dane to take over the 2 days per week that Rob will no longer be covering.
Mondays and Tuesdays: Dr Dane
Wed, Thur, Friday: Dr Kidway
In order to satisfy NHS statutory requirements all patients currently registered with Dr Clark will now temporarily have Dr Kidway as their registered doctor. Our practice operates a "usual" doctor system for allocation of paperwork but all clinical work is shared and patients are free to ask to see any doctor who works at the practice. If you wish to have a different doctor nominated as your usual doctor please let us know and we will adjust your records accordingly.
Dr Clark retiring during this pandemic has been very difficult. He has been a huge asset to our team here and both a wonderful colleague and friend. The lockdown has prevented the usual leaving parties and retirement books but we will be having a celebration later in the year assuming the pandemic settles. If you would like to pass any messages to Dr Clark please e-mail them to the surgery or post them to us and we will ensure that they are passed on to him.
Thank-you for your understanding
Dr Simon Gankerseer
