Partner Retirement - Dr David Ratcliffe
We are at once delighted and disappointed to announce that Dr David Ratcliffe will be retiring from the practice on June 30th 2017 after twenty eight years as a GP here at Fort House Surgery.
When David joined the practice in 1988, the number of employees on the payroll was less than ten and we managed about four and half thousand patients. Now we have nine doctors, twenty six members of staff and thirteen thousand patients!!
We know his patients will miss him, he will be sorely missed by us all and impossible to replace (well almost!)
We know you will all join us in wishing David well as he starts a new chapter in his life.
If your current named GP is Dr Ratcliffe you will automatically be transferred to one of our new Partners.
The new Partnership will be formed of five doctors:-
Dr Richard Redfern (M)
Dr Tim Bates (M)
Dr Yasmine Weeks (F)
Dr Sitso Amankwah (M)
Dr Louise Carvalho (F)
As well as our fabulous salaried doctors:-
Dr Merion Williams (F)
Dr Robina Jones (F)
Dr Kirsty Schmidt (F)
