“As many of you may know, I was diagnosed with a brain tumour in December 2014 and have been off work since. I am sad to announce my retirement on health grounds from medical practice as from 21st December 2015.
It has been a privilege for me to serve as a GP in Ottery St Mary for twenty years, and I will miss the patients and staff of the Coleridge Medical Centre, of Ottery St Mary Hospital, and the wider health community.
I would like to thank those people who have sent me letters and cards of support throughout my illness.
Wishing you all, health and happiness for the future.”
