It is a great privilege being a family GP, providing one-to-one care over the years. Since I started at Harcourt in January 1987 I have watched families grow, shared in their good times and stood alongside them and served in the difficult ones.
Medicine is ever-changing but that doctor/patient relationship is as important as ever.
I am writing to you now to share the news of my retirement from Harcourt in April 2014.
While I will miss you all, I can say with confidence that you will be well cared for in the months and years to come: Drs Nathan and Hannah Francis are joining the team to take over your care in April. Husband and wife, they are both very experienced, having been working in Gloucestershire and South Wales. They are looking forward to meeting you and continuing your care.
I wish you all well and I thank you for letting me be your GP over the past years.
