Forthcoming Retirement of GP announced:

Dr Charles Parker has informed the team here at Topcliffe that he intends to retire from the surgery at the end of September 2020 after 28 years' service at the surgery and for its patients.

Dr Doswell and Dr Wood intend to begin the process very shortly to recruit a new GP to join the team and to continue our ethos of responsive and outstanding patient care.

Updates in developments will be announced later in the year when the GPs hope to have identified the perfect candidate to join the team.
