Latest News - Dr Bhamra
Our Senior Partner, Dr Bhamra retired at the end of June. Dr Bhamra was a member of the practice for 37 years, and he will be missed by staff and patients alike.
Dr West and Dr Duggal are two excellent young doctors who have been working in the practice for some time. They will be taking over Dr Bhamra's patient list and will work together to provide continuity of care across the working week.
At the same time, we are recruiting a new doctor to ensure we continue to provide the same number of GP appointments after Dr Bhamra retires.
I'm sure you will join the Practice Team in wishing Dr Bhamra a long and very fulfilling retirement.
If you have been to hospital, the doctor there may say that you need to be referred to another service, or have some new medication prescribed by your GP. Unfortunately, they do not always tell us what needs to be done as clearly as they should. If time passes and nothing happens, you may wish to make a telephone appointment with your GP to discuss this.
Data sharing scheme - care.data
NHS England have now announced that they will be delaying the implementation of care.data by six months in order to give them the chance to better explain the benefits of the scheme and also to make sure that everyone is aware of their right to opt out of care.data if they want to.
