We have been extremely lucky to have had the pleasure of working with Dr Alexander Rose and Dr Julia Hempenstall recently as they have been covering part of Dr Abi Latham's maternity leave. Unfortunately though, this will be the last week that both GP's will be with us. We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you so much to Dr Rose and Dr Hempenstall for all of their hard work, dedication and exceptional patient care! We will miss you both within our team and we wish you all the best in your plans for the future.
It is with great sadness that we have to inform you of the resignation that we have received from Dr Abi Latham who is currently on maternity leave. We wish Dr Latham every success for the future, she will be sorely missed as one of the St Mary's Team. We are in the process of finding a replacement partner to take on Dr Lathams registered patients so this will have minimal affect on her patients. Please read the letter below from Dr Latham to you all. If you have any questions or queries on how this may impact you then please do not hesitate to contact us.
Booking Appointments with Reception Staff
We have become increasingly aware of the frustrations from patients that are asked questions regarding their appointments and any symptoms that they are experiencing. We do appreciate that you may feel that this is an invasion of your privacy and you do not have to discuss any information that you do not wish to. However, it does help us to ensure that we make the correct appointment for your needs. Please feel free to read the document below for a better understanding on this matter.
