IMPORTANT PRACTICE NEWS
We are sad to announce that Dr. Singh will be retiring from the practice on 8th March 2018.
Patients registered with Dr. Singh will be transferred over to our new Doctor, Dr. I. Karir. To re-iterate, regulations state that you have to have a named, registered GP. This however does not prevent you from seeing any Doctor of your choice.
We recognise changes to the GP team can be unsettling for patients but we would like to thank you in advance for your cooperation during this transitional period.
Please do not hesitate to speak to the Practice Manager if you have any questions.
Please have a look at our Military Veterans page for more information on the benefits of telling the practice if you have previously served in the Armed Forces.
