After 39 years serving the patients of Whitley Bay and surrounding areas, the Practice is sad to announce the retirement of Dr Angus McManners who will be leaving us in December.
I am sure you will join our team in wishing Dr McManners a long, happy and healthy retirement. We will all miss him very much.
We are delighted to announce that we have appointed two new GP Partners to the Practice, Dr Helen Berry and Dr Helen Harman, both of whom will start in January 2022.
Dr McManner’s list will be shared between the new Partners, so it is necessary to adjust the lists of the remaining partners in order to maintain the current quality and continuity of care we are proud of at Whitley Bay Health Centre.
This means that in January 2022, we will have to relocate some patients, chosen randomly, to other Partners within the surgery, but these numbers will be kept to a minimum. Please note we will not be able to action any requests for changes to GP Partners within the practice until 6 months after the new GP’s commence with us. This is to ensure all Partners have an equal and appropriate number of patients on their list.
We hope you will understand that these changes are unavoidable and look forward to your continuing support as always.
Practice Manager For an on behalf of Whitley Bay Health Centre
