LATEST PRACTICE NEWS
Dr Peter Biggs to retire at the end of March 2018.
Dr Biggs is retiring from the Practice at the end of March 2018 after over 30 years serving the population of Canterbury. He was instrumental in enabling the practice to move from the premises in Watling Street to Northgate in 2000 and has been one of the main drivers in developing the services that we are able to deliver to our patients today. I am sure you will join us in wishing him a long and happy retirement.
Patients registered with Dr Biggs will be notified of their new GP when arrangements are finalised.
