Goodbyes

The Partners and Staff at Sunnyside was extremely sad to say 'goodbye' to Dr Malcolm Jones at the end of September after almost 29 years as a Partner at the Practice.   As well a providing excellent care for thousands of patients over the years, Dr Jones has also provided guidance and support for us all as a team as we went through several big changes over the years.  He also worked extremely hard behind the scenes towards the project for the new Health Centre at St Clare for more years than you would believe and the great facilities the new building will offer us all are partly his legacy.  We will miss is care and commitment in the Practice.  Patients registered with Dr Jones will have received a letter from the practice informing you of your new allocated GP.

Welcome

Sunnyside is delighted to welcome an additional Acute Illness Practitioner,  Matthew Thomson, to the Team. Matt is Paramedic with a wealth of minor illness experience and he will be working alongside Sandra Chadwick to provide daily appointments for all acute illness/minor injury related problems. Both Practitioners are well supported by the GPs.

We have also welcomed our new full-time GP Registrar , Dr Sam Parkin on 2nd August 2017.  Sam will be available for appointments Monday to Friday.

Finally Suzy Phillips, Diabetic Lead Nurse joined us in September and will be seeing patients for their diabetic annual reviews and running clinics at the Practice with the Diabetic Specialist Nurse.
