Dr Hodges Retired December 2020
Dr Hodges has now retired from General Practice. His patient list is in the process of being transferred across to the remaining GPs in the Practice, this should not have an effect patient’s on-going care as our team work very closely together to provide the best care that they can to all our patients.
Patients will not need to complete any paper work at the Practice to be transferred onto the new GPs list. However, with patient choice you may decide to transfer to another Practice for your on-going care and you will need to complete registration forms to apply to be a patient on their list. You will need to ask the new practice for the forms.
Dr Hodges has been a valuable member of the Practice Team for the past 20+ years and he will be missed by both colleagues and patients. We cannot thank him enough for his hard work and dedication to the Practice and we all wish him well in his retirement.
Dr Harrison has now replaced Dr Hodges. Some patients may have met him previously when he was a GP registrar at the Practice.
