Arrivals and Departures
At the beginning of August, Dr Rachel Dakin joined the practice for her final year of General Practitioner training. Dr Dakin is a fully qualified doctor - she qualified from Liverpool University in August 2013 since when she has spend the intervening years undergoing further training to qualify her to become a GP. She will be in the practice until the end of July 2018 and during her time here she will be under the supervision of Dr Kaye and Dr Underwood.
Barbara Maudsley left the practice at the end of October to take on new challenges. Barbara had been with the practice for almost 25 years and her enthusiasm for her role, her knowledge and expertise is greatly missed by colleagues and patients alike. We have been fortunate to appoint a highly experienced, specialist nurse, Lynne Ashton who started in September. Lynne works 3 days a week and in addition to practice nursing her main role is to carry out the regular reviews for long term conditions such as asthma, COPD, diabetes, ischaemic heart disease, heart failure and hypertension.
