Dr Fountain joins the practice
In March 2015 Dr Sandra Fountain (formerly based at Lincoln Rd Medical Rooms) joined the practice. Over the 3 months prior to this, fairly major structural changes had to be made to the building to accommodate an additional doctor. The original reception area was gutted and expanded to be transformed into the new waiting room (seen on the Home Page), and the original waiting room became Dr Fountain’s consulting room. The nurses room was reduced in size a little to expand the waiting room. H & R Garlick Builders did an amazing job, first wrecking the place, then unbelievably, getting it back to a state where we could open again by the 5/1/15. Thanks guys. At the same time we decided to modernize our plumbing and changed over to gas hot water.
To cope with the resultant greater patient load there have been some staff changes. Sharyn, Dr Rollinson’s practice nurse of many years, decided to move on to take up a life of leisure travelling round the country with her husband in their newly acquired mobile home. To replace her the practice now has two new experienced nurses, Jan and Lisa, both very motivated and keen on their exercise. Cheryl, Dr Rollinson’s receptionist of many years, now only works Mon-Wed, and Elaine has joined us to cover Thursdays and Fridays. We have also been blessed with some excellent part-time staff to cover absences and holidays.
