Dear Patients. 

Today is the first day of my retirement and with this in mind I wanted to take a moment to reflect and wish you and the team well moving forward. 

I have been fortunate to have been your GP for 33 years. During this time, I have always strived to be a traditional family doctor. It has been a rewarding and happy time and I am grateful for the kindness shown to me by Park Parade patients throughout this period.  It is a role which I never viewed lightly.  The privilege and responsibility which comes with being a GP is significant.  The reward is best measured in patient response and I am grateful for the many kind words I have received from you all in the last few months. 

I have been lucky to have been surrounded by a strong and caring team of doctors, nurses, and admin staff.  We have always had the same goal of offering patient centred care.  I have worked hard to engender this view as being the fundamental ethos of our practice, and I am happy to know this will be my legacy moving forward. 

I wish you all well.  I am grateful to know I have left you in safe and caring hands.
