I am retiring from regular General Practice on June 25 2021, after over three decades at Bluff Road Medical Centre. I apologize if I have not personally said goodbye and wished you well! Dr Ananya Murthy and Dr Kate Exon have been seeing many of my ‘regulars’ and are highly skilled, very experienced GPs.

I will remain involved with teaching and may do some holiday GP cover further down the track. For now, I am looking forward to more fresh air, less time in front of a computer and improved fitness. I wish you all the same!
