Retirement of Dr. Hardwick from the Practice

Following a period of ill health, we are sorry to have to inform patients that Dr. Bernard Hardwick has decided to retire from the practice at the end of June 2019.

We are actively trying to recruit a new GP to replace Dr. Hardwick in the practice. In the meantime, we are employing locums to assist in the smooth running of the surgery.  We appreciate that this will cause a period of uncertainty for patients registered with Dr. Hardwick but we would hope that there will be as little interruption as possible to the maintenance of medical care at the practice.  Please rest assured that we are doing the best we can to ensure the continuance of care for all patients of the practice.

Until such time as another GP is appointed in post, we will not be registering new patients at the surgery.

Please bear with us during this period of change and we are sure you will join us in wishing Dr. Hardwick all the best for his retirement from the practice.
