23rd June 2020 – Special Announcement from our Senior Partner Dr Robin Evans

I would like to announce that, after 32 years, I am retiring as a Partner at Swallownest General Practice in July this year.

I first came to work here as a trainee GP in 1985 for one year and, after 2 years further training in hospital, I joined as a full Partner in February 1988.

Throughout my time here I have considered it both a privilege and a pleasure to work in this community. I have seen many changes both in society and in medicine during my career, but the fundamental nature of General Practice has not changed – it is simply the process of two people (doctor and patient) trying to find the solution to a problem together. Sadly we are currently all facing the same huge problem of how to keep ourselves and our families safe during this dreadful pandemic.

I hope that you all find a way of coping and keeping yourselves healthy until things return to something like normal.

Best wishes to you all.

Dr Rob Evans
