We are very sad to announce that Dr Justin Lawson & Dr Sue Picton have now left our practice.

Dr Lawson will be pursing his medical career throughout the prison service

Dr Picton will be continuing her medical career with her skill of training GP Registrars

Both partners have been an integral part of the practice and will be hugely missed by staff and patients.

We wish them both well for the future
