Message to patients from Dr McCallion

Upon my retirement, I wish to take this opportunity to thank you all for your kind words, cards, notes, letters and gifts.  Over the past 30 plus years I have always felt privileged to be your doctor and part of your community and lives.  Together we have come through some very expectant, worrying, sad and happy times.  Through it all I have been overwhelmed by the strength and resilience of you, our patients, and I will always value and remember the relationships we formed in the difficult and good times.

I know the practice will continue to develop and meet the challenges that will come your way.  I wish you all the best of health and time ahead. 

Thanks again for your friendship and for putting up with things when I was trying to get it right and bearing with me until I did!  You'll probably not miss the bad jokes.

Be Good!

We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.

PIP APPLICATIONS

There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Caring for a parent

    Watch this video on: caring for a parent at home

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
