THE PATIENT PARTICIPATION GROUP
The Neaman Practice would like to invite you to attend the next Patient Participation Group Meeting on:
16th March 2017
Dr David Vasserman after working 26 years for the Neaman Practice as Lead GP and Partner has decided to retire in June 2017.
Patients will be given the opportunity to say their goodbyes to Dr Vasserman at a farewell gathering which the Neaman Practice will be announcing closer to the time.
The Partners and all staff at the Practice would like to wish David a fond farewell and a happy retirement.
Please see the message below from Dr Vasserman:
After 26 years of working with the practice I will be retiring at the end of June 2017. I have really enjoyed working at the practice and have seen many changes from those early days when I joined Dr Gill Neaman. The practice in Long Lane had 3 consulting rooms, 3000 patients and we provided 24 hour care including nights and weekends. In 2004 we moved to our current premises and expanded the number of doctors, nurses, receptionists and other services to care for over 9000 patients. There are many aspects of the practice which I am proud of and we have recently had a successful CQC inspection. The Practice has a strong clinical team of 7 doctors 2 nurses and a psychotherapist with additional training posts and a dedicated reception and administration team who work tirelessly to keep the practice running smoothly.. The practice will be planning to recruit my replacement in the near future. I believe that the service we offer is personalised and patient centred. Our aim has always been to give a high standard of care. The NHS is currently going through a difficult phase. General Practice is the backbone of the service and I believe it will evolve to continue to meet the needs of patients. During the next six months I hope to be able to individually say my goodbyes and the practice will be arranging a gathering nearer the time

Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
