DR BLACK'S RETIREMENT

A Message from Dr Black

After 32 years I have decided to call it a day before I overstay my welcome!  It has been a pleasure and privilege to serve at Betts and I take with me so many happy memories.

General Practice has changed immeasurably over the course of my carer - not always for the better!

Looking back my greatest satisfaction has come from delivering old style family medicine. Many of the children I looked after as babies in 1980's and 1990's are now parents in their own right.  Indeed together with my father there have been Dr Black's working at this practice for over 60years.

Still nothing goes on forever and it is time for new blood and fresh idea's.

I have every confidence in the long term future of the practice and wish my successors all good fortune.

I shall be leaving the practice on Monday 5th February but until then it is business as usual!

With all good wishes

David Black

YOUNG PEOPLES PAGE

12 TO 18'S

This page is especially for young people aged between 12 and 18.

We hope this page helps you to understand how to access advice and healthcare about anything you may be worried about.

How do I get help or advice?

  • Make an appointment to see one of the Doctors or Nurses - you can bring a friend, or a parent / guardian, or you can come on your own.

Is the service confidential?

Even if you are under 16 you still have the same rights to confidentiality as anyone else.

Our Doctors and Nurses have to follow very strict rules on confidentiality and the law says we have to keep all patient records and information completely private.

In exceptional circumstances, for example when a doctor or nurse thinks you might be in serious danger, it might be necessary to pass information on but, even if we do, e will usually talk to you first before we tell anyone else.  This applies to everyone, no matter what age you are.
