End of an Era!
The Partners would like to inform our patients that after over 35 years as a partner, Dr Nick Hewitt will be retiring on March 31st.
We understand that for some patients, he will have been “your doctor” for very many years – perhaps even for all of your life.
Whilst we are sad to see him end his long association with the practice – we all wish him a long and Happy Retirement.
We have opened a book and if you would like to leave Dr Hewitt a personal message, which we are sure he will treasure and enjoy reading long into his retirement, it is available at the Reception Desk on request.
New name for the Partnership
Following the departure of Dr Hewitt at the end of March 2016, the partnership will be known as Eleanor Cross Healthcare, in keeping with the area we cover and local history. The two surgeries will keep their original names. But you will notice a difference on any letters etc. we send you. Please look out for our new logo!
