Dr Paul Head – Retirement
It is with regret that we announce that Dr Paul Head is to retire after 30 years as a well respected and popular GP at the Mendlesham (inc. Bacton) Health Centre.
General practice has changed significantly over this time and we thank Dr Head for his huge commitment to the practice, the staff and above all to the patients.
We understand from Dr Head that this has not been an easy decision as he has enjoyed his time with the practice; however he leaves his patients in the capable hands of his current colleagues and Dr Julia Ford who will be joining the practice in April 2014.
We wish him a long and happy retirement as I am sure you all do!

News from the Friends of Mendlesham Health Centre (Incorporating Bacton Surgery)
Following consultation with the Practice and patient surveys the 'Friends' have agreed to make refurbishment of the waiting room at Mendlesham their next project. This will complement other improvements due to be undertaken by the Practice. Work sponsored by the 'Friends' will include the creation of a more user friendly reception area, replacement of floor covering to comply with current NHS health and safety requirements, and the upgrading of seating. Improvements will also be made to information display areas, and the TV message system. Once completed, the architect's plans will be displayed in the waiting area prior to the tendering process and commencement of the project.
This work is due to the generosity of past and present patients of the Practice including memorial donations and bequests.
