I would like to express my thanks for all the kind cards and gifts which have come into the practice at both Green and Harnall Lane over the last week. Your good wishes have been quite overwhelming; and my house awash with a riot of floral colour. My colleagues gave me a very good send off, with lunches held at both sites and I think all the partners and staff were able to join me at either one place or the other. I have no immediate plans to move into another practice and aim to take at least a 6 month break from clinical work. I will be continuing with my other roles around contract negotiation, helping doctors in difficulty and as a member of the General Practitioners' Committee at the British Medical Association. I wish Sky Blue Medical Group the very best as it moves forward into the future.
Dr Sarah Matthews.
