Information for Patients of Dr Fran Palmer

Dr Fran Palmer has left us to take up a partnership at another practice. We are sorry to be saying goodbye but wish her all the best for the future.

The other GPs at the practice have taken over the care of Dr Palmer's patients. Please do not hesitate to ask a member of staff for the details of your named GP.

The transfer will happen automatically and there is no action required by patients. Should you have any queries however please do not hesitate to contact Debbie Sargeant, Practice Manager, on 01395 280440.

There have been a number of changes to our clinical team recently and we appreciate that changing doctors can be concerning. We apologise for any inconvenience these changes may have caused and would like to reassure you that we continue to be committed to providing the best possible service for our patients.
