Farewell to Dr Aitcheson
After 27 years with the practice, Dr Aitcheson is taking a career break. She will leave the practice on 31st March 2018.
She would like to express her thanks for the opportunity to care for so many families, and the trust you have placed in her care.
Doctors Ramesh, Ravest and Allen will continue to provide the highest standards of care. They will soon be joined by Dr Hafeez.
We are extremely pleased to have been able to recruit three full time nurses to the practice. All are highly experienced and very skilled in their roles. Our aim is for the nurses to meet more of the on the day demand which will free up the GPs to have more routine appointments and to better care for those who have more serious illnesses.
From 1st April 2015 the Health Secretary has determined that all patients (including children) will have a named, accountable GP who will take lead responsibility for the co-ordination of all your appropriate NHS services.
Whereas your overall care remains the responsibility of the Practice as a whole, the accountable GP shall take responsibility for coordinating your care.
Your Accountable GP is your usual GP.
This does not prevent you from seeing another GP if you so wish; the choice remains yours.
If you want to know who your accountable GP is then please ask when you next have a consultation with a practice medical professional, or ask one of the support staff, receptions, prescription clerks, the Practice Manager and we will be happy to tell you.
