We would like to thank her for her hard work and dedication over the years. We wish her a long and Happy Retirement.
Given the information above, regarding Dr Smith retiring, I am sure you will be pleased to hear that we have 2 new GP's.

Practice Boundary Change
As of 1st December 2013 our practice boundary has been adjusted to include PA7 postcodes only. Patients registered at Bishopton Medical Practice currently living within the PA8 and PA4 postcode areas will be kept on the list at their current address. However anyone moving to a new address within PA8 and PA4 will be required to register at a more local practice. This applies whether it is people moving into the area or who are currently patients of Bishopton Medical Practice.
We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
