NEW DOCTOR JOINS TOPCLIFFE SURGERY
As many of you will know, Dr Charles Parker retired as a GP Partner from Topcliffe Surgery at the end of September after 28 years in the post. We were sad to see Charles leave and wish him every happiness in his retirement from the Surgery.
Topcliffe Surgery is delighted to announce that Dr Alison Latin joined the team as our newly appointed GP at the begining of October. Alison joined us from Mowbray Surgery in Northallerton and will support Drs Doswell and Wood. We hope you will join us in welcoming her to the team.
All consultations are currently being carried out by telephone triage in the first instance. Any patients then being asked to come into the surgery to see a Doctor or Nurse will need to arrive at the surgery wearing a suitable face covering designed to cover mouth and nose.
