I have been a GP to many wonderful whanau & families, looking after three and sometimes four generations. Now I am looking after the children of parents whom I delivered over 20 years ago, back in the days when GPs assisted with most deliveries and were often up at nights and weekends, in addition to the daytime work of General Practice.
It has been a privilege and humbling to be your family doctor for so many years. I thank you for your trust, and loyalty. You have given me many life lessons, experiences and great memories. Good times, difficult and sad times, we have been through a lot together.
‘Little London Medical Clinic’ was started over a 100 years ago by Dr Tim Rogers. Our owners, Hamilton based ‘Activate Foundation Trust’, intend it to still be operating a 100 years from now, providing its ‘boutique’ style of family General Practice.
Dr Lesley Topping will be continuing at the clinic, and over this year many of you have met and welcomed newcomers Dr Dasna Pallie and Dr Rawiri Keenan.
I am delighted to introduce you to Dr Stephanie Cowie, who comes highly recommended and will take over from me in January. Stephanie has worked as a GP in the Waikato for several years, and is very familiar with the Waikato people, culture, and Hamilton medical services.
I think this practice will benefit hugely from the fresh talent, energy and up-to-date skill sets that our new GPs bring to your health care.
I want to reassure you that ‘Little London Medical Clinic’ will continue to provide you with our ‘boutique’ style of family general practice, in a homely atmosphere.
Thank you for your trust and loyalty over the years. It has been a privilege to be your GP, and I leave you in good, caring and very capable hands.
