A MESSAGE FROM DR ANSELL
I am delighted to be able to let my patients know that my husband and I are expecting a baby at the end of August. I will be taking maternity leave from the 14th August and returning to my usual timetable after easter weekend 2016. I am pleased to announce that Dr James Woodward has agreed to look after my patients for the first few months of my maternity leave. He is a locally trained GP who I hold in the highest regard and have every faith he will continue to uphold the excellent level of care we expect at the Phoenix Surgery. I will be keeping in weekly contact with him whilst I am on leave so I don't lose touch with you all whilst I am away.
Best wishes - Dr Ansell
