Thank You Letter for Farewell Party to Colleagues - Assignment Point

Dr Sue Fairbanks will be leaving the practice from 31st March 2021.  Dr Fairbanks writes:  "I am very sorry to let you know that I am leaving Sidley Medical Practice at the end of the month.  It has been a great privilege to be a GP at this practice.  I wish my patients well for the future."  The practice will continue to care for Dr Fairbanks's patients.

We will sadly be saying farewell to Dr Helen Plumpton on 31st March this year.  Dr Plumpton will be leaving General Practice after 25 years and plans to spend more time working in Memory Assessment and Dementia services.  We will all wish her well, but she will be greatly missed by all her colleagues and patients.  Our practice GPs will continue to care for Dr Plumpton’s patients.
