Dr Thorne has been at Harcourt for over 15 years and has decided that the time is right for a career break and an adult ‘gap year’.
“Since qualifying as a doctor in 1981, I have seen many changes in the NHS, particularly in general practice. Working at Harcourt has brought many rewards as well as challenges. I am a great advocate of the personal list system operating at Harcourt which provides the opportunity for patients and doctors get to know each other very well. This system creates excellent continuity in caring for patients.
Unfortunately it has not been possible to advise every patient in person of my plans. It has been a great privilege to be your GP, to share in your lives and to work as part of the team at Harcourt. Thank you.
I send my patients and all the staff and doctors at Harcourt my very best wishes for their health and happiness in the future.”
