Dr Copas is changing her role within the Water Meadow Surgery team. She is reducing the number of sessions she works from 4 down to 3 and she will no longer be looking after a list of patients.

Dr Milward is a very experienced doctor who will be working 5 sessions a week: All day Monday, Tuesday morning and all day Thursday

We are pleased to announce that we have appointed Dr Pathak to take care of Dr Hyder's patients until Dr Hyder returns. Dr Pathak we will work all day Tuesday and all day Thursday.
