Dr Catherine Maytum
Our Lead GP, Dr Catherine Maytum will be sadly leaving us in April. Catherine has secured a fantastic position outside of General Practice and, we wish her the very best in this new and exciting role. Catherine has been with the practice, since it opened in 2009, providing leadership and support and will be missed by staff and patients alike. Catherine is taking a few days much needed annual leave, prior to leaving, so her final day at the practice will be 16th March 23.

Future plans for The Galleries
You may have heard on the news that plans have been revealed for the re-development of the Galleries. These plans are due to start in July 2024. We are not yet aware of any impact on the practice. Public consultation events are planned for next week:
The public consultation events include:
- A webinar on Wednesday 13 July at 6pm - please register via the website
