Dr Rosie Telford is Retiring

We’re sorry to inform patients that Dr Rosie Telford will be retiring from the practice on 31st March 2021 after over 26 years’ service as a GP.

Dr Telford says:

‘It has been a great pleasure to have provided medical care for my patients, you have all taught me so much. I have been involved in the training of student doctors, junior doctors and nurse practitioners. My career in the NHS started when I graduated from Manchester Medical School in 1983. I started work at the Robert Darbishire Practice on December 1st 1990, before this I worked at hospitals in Manchester and London and as GP in London and Chippenham. I also had a happy 2 years working and travelling in Australia, here I worked as a GP locum and also spent six months as a Flying Doctor in the Northern Territories. During my time at the practice I have seen the standard of medical and social care we provide for our patients go from strength to strength and I know that I will leave my patients in capable hands. My decision to retire has been a difficult to make but the time is right. I want to spend some time with my daughter over the summer before she goes to University. I may come back and do some sessional work but not on a regular basis.’

Dr Telford will be greatly missed by both her patients and all the practice staff. We send her all our good wishes.
