Do you make the most of your Pharmacist. Come along and find out how they can help

All registered patients welcome

Dr Connan News

Dr Peter Connan will be retiring from General Practice at the end of June 2018.

Dr Connan has taken the lead in many specific areas including the Patient Group. After more than 27 years of dedication and commitment to Huntingdon Road and Girton Surgeries we understand that this will be sad news for his patients, as it has been for us all here. However, we would of course like to wish Dr Connan the very best and a most enjoyable, lengthy retirement.

We are in the process of recruiting several new members of staff, including a new Doctor – details of which we will announce as soon as we are able.

We support the practice too e.g. by helping to compile and analyse surveys, by editing and producing the practice’s termly newsletters, and by organising the PG’s activities.

We are affiliated to the National Association of Patient Participation Groups, which works in close association with the Royal College of General Practitioners.

More members welcome!
