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

New Patient Registration

Before you are fully registered with the Practice, we ask that you complete a New Patient Health Questionnaire. Your medical record often takes a considerable time to arrive from your previous doctor and this gives us the opportunity of recording some basic information about you and offering you any immediate care you may need.

You will be registered with the Practice rather than a specific doctor, but you have a right to ask to see a particular doctor, if you wish. If you have a requirement for a prescription then you should arrange an appointment with a doctor of your choice to discuss your ongoing care.

However, due to government initiative you will be given a Named GP but this does not affect your choice to see any GP in the practice.

We do not exclude patients from the Practice on grounds of race, sexuality, religion, social class, age, disability or medical condition. Please contact the surgery reception to join our practice.

We have produced a practice booklet which explains all about the practice – please pick one up for the surgery.

Guide to GP Services

The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them.  You can download the guide below.
