Information for Patients of Dr Tessa Phillp and Dr Kevin Douglas
Dr Tessa Phillp will be leaving the practice at the end of July as her and her husband are embarking on an exciting move to Australia.
We will all miss Tessa but of course would like to thank her for all of her hard work during her time with us and wish her well for the future.
Dr Susie Pathmanathan will be joining us from Mid August. Many of you will have already met her as she has just completed her final year of GP training here as a GP Registrar. We are very pleased that Susie is staying with us as she is a great addition to the Claremont Team.
We have taken this opportunity to rationalise all of our individual GP list sizes and patients registered with Dr Kevin Douglas with surnames starting A-G inclusive will be transferred to Dr Pathmanathan. The transfer will happen automatically and there is no action required by patients. Should you have any queries however please do not hesitate to contact Debbie Sargeant, Practice Manager, on 01395 280440.
We appreciate that changing Doctors can be unsettling and apologise for any inconvenience caused. Please be assured that we continue to be committed to providing the best possible service for our patients.
Retirement of Dr Nigel Johnston
Dr Nigel Johnston will be retiring on 1st March after over 20 years as a GP at Claremont. We are of course sorry to see him go but wish him all the best for the future.
Nigel has had the privilege of getting to know his patients over the time he has been us and wishes them all the best for the future.
Dr Katie Lippett will be joining us in the middle of March and will be taking over Nigel’s patient list. We very much look forward to Katie joining our team.
The transfer will happen automatically and there is no action required by patients. Should you have any queries however please do not hesitate to contact Debbie Sargeant, Practice Manager, on 01395 280440
