 A sad fairwell to Dr Sheikh who will be leaving the practice

After 28 years in General Practice Dr Sheikh has made the difficult decision to leave the practice on 30th September 2018 to take up more time with his family.  We are sad to see him go, he has been our Senior Partner and has taken the practice forward in so many ways over the years.  We wish him all the very best for the future.
