Resignation Dr Clare Ilsley June 2022
A message from Dr Clare Ilsley
I write to let you know that I will be leaving Sidley Medical Practice in July this year.
This has been a very difficult decision to make. I have worked here for 11 years and have hugely enjoyed my time here.
The last couple of years over COVID have been extremely hard for many, and I think have given a lot of us an opportunity to reflect, and I feel that this is the right decision for me and my family .
I still hugely enjoy being a GP and it has been an honour to be involved in so many of your lives for so long. Its been a privilege to watch your kids grow up, to share the good and bad bits of your lives, to be able to support you in the tricky times and to be there at the end .
I am grateful for the trust that many of you have placed in me , and I have been amazed by the kindness, humor, stoicism and positivity that many of you have showed me over the years. This is a job that one never stops learning in, and my patients have often been the best teachers.
I would like to thank my partners and all the staff here at the practice for their exceptional hard work, especially over the last few years where we have seen so much change.
And I would like to thank my patients for helping me to develop as a GP over the last decade. I will miss you.
