After fifteen years with the Practice, Dr Jackie Koo, GP Partner will be taking up the chance to emigrate to Australia and seek opportunities for her and her family on 31st March 2019.

Dr Koo joined the Practice in November 2004 and has been a key leader of change, responding to the needs of the patients to improve services and the quality of care.

Whilst we will be losing an excellent clinician, who has helped to lead the team, Dr Cowee and Dr Siriwardena will remain in post as GP Partners, support by Hannah Crisford, Practice Manager.

The Practice has already recruited two new GPs to support Dr Koo’s departure. We will to continue to expand our already well established Clinical team further as the population grows.

We will make further announcements in relation to new members of the team as appropriate.
