Dr Lobb is retiring....

As many of you already know, I am retiring from practice this summer. I first joined the Practice as a trainee in the summer of 1989 and then returned following completion of my training, to become a Partner in 1992. I have been very fortunate to have worked with many wonderful and supportive colleagues over the years and would like to thank all the receptionists, secretaries, health care assistants, nurses, managers, doctors and other health care professionals past and present who have enabled me to enjoy my job so much.


I would like to take this opportunity to thank my patients for their support over the years. It has been my utmost pleasure to have helped you and your family. I will miss the day to day contact and friendships I have made over the years. I leave you in the very capable hands of all of my colleagues and wish you all the best.


Dr Brian Lobb
