Goodbye and Farewell
We are sure that many of you will already be aware that, for the past year Dr Conway has been working at St Michael's Hospice in addition to her role at the surgery. We are sorry to announce that she has decided to leave the practice a little sooner than anticipated to focus on her new role at the hospice and so will not be taking any further surgeries at St Katherines. She is looking forward to the next stage in her career but will be sad to leave her colleagues and patients. Dr Conway has seen the practice through many changes over the last 26 years and the team would like to thank her for all her hard work and dedication. We are sure you would like to join us in wishing her all the best for the future.
We are now running a Rapid Access Clinic to ensure that those patients with urgent medical problems see the right person quickly. The clinics are run by a Doctor and a Nurse.
When you request an urgent on the day appointment the receptionist will ask you the nature of your problem. This is purely so they can direct you to the most appropriate healthcare professional to deal with your ailment.
All children under 2 years old will be see by a doctor. You must be reassured that if you are directed to the nurse led clinic and she feels that a second opinion is needed she will ask a doctor to come in and review you.
In June 2017 96% of respondents to the NHS Friends and Family Test stated they were either 'extremely likely' or 'likely' to recommend the Surgery to a friend or a member of their family.
