We are sorry to announce that Dr Patricia Stovin will be retiring from the Practice on the 16th of December 2018. Dr Stovin would like to express her thanks and gratitude at having had the privilege of looking after such a wonderful set of patients over many years. She has thoroughly enjoyed working with everyone at the practice and wishes both patients and staff all the very best for the future. We know that you will all join us in thanking her for her many years of service to the community.
Drs Ko, Mathew, Henderson, Waddoups and Amer will remain as partners at James Street Family Practice and continue her legacy. As well as our long standing team of GP’s, Nurses and Admin you will see some new faces in January 2019 and we hope you will make them feel welcome. I am sure you will join with us in wishing Dr Stovin a long and happy retirement.
