Off The Record – February 2017

As a newcomer to Bromyard I am delighted by the warm welcome from the people I am meeting and the places I am discovering. The most important change to the Practice coming up in the near future is that Dr Tait will be retiring from the partnership from the end of April 2017. He has served the local and wider community for almost 30 years and apart from being a highly regarded local GP he has been a key member of the Clinical Commissioning Group Governing Body for Herefordshire. Dr Tait’s leaving may come as quite a shock for many of you and we know he will be much missed.


Over the past year there have been a number of changes which have brought challenges such as Dr Houston leaving. We are taking these changes in our stride at Nunwell, with myself and Dr HallĀ  joining the team. Of other particular note is that the Dispensary is now fully staffed.


On the subject of change, which is essentially inevitable, the New Year often brings with it thoughts of resolutions and commitment to change. As we know all too well, many of these commitments fall by the wayside by February and make those good intentions and gym memberships redundant. Whatever change you would like to make, particularly with regards to your health, how might you make some commitment which might enable you to move forward in some small way? “The secret of change is to focus all your energy, not on fighting the old, but building on the new” and remember we are here to support you with the choices you make with respect to your health.

We at Nunwell would like to wish you all the very best for the New Year.

Being a keen Hill Walker I am fast discovering the environs of Malvern and Herefordshire. The scenery is stunning with something new to find around every corner and hope you like the photo.
