Dear Patients of The Crown Surgery,
Having worked at the surgery since September 1993, reached the age of 60, and struggled with my health over the past year, I have decided it is time to hang up my stethoscope. As such, I will be retiring from the practice on the 31st of August 2022.
Over the last 29 years I have been greatly helped by the support of my fellow GPs and a brilliant practice team. I have also experienced much kindness and generosity from many of you, for which I will always be hugely grateful.
Whilst I am very sad to be leaving the practice, I am delighted to be able to announce that Dr Sherjel (Serj) Khawaja has agreed to become a partner as of September 1st. Dr Khawaja has worked at The Crown for the past year and has been very well liked and respected by staff and patients alike. It would mean a great deal to me if you continued to support him and Drs Lucy Jones, Sarah Brookes, Alison Shelley, and Harriet Pearce in the same way that you have supported me, as they continue to care for the community in the months and years ahead.
With my thanks
Dr David Carr
