Farewell to Dr Phil Spencer

FAREWELL TO DR PHIL SPENCER

WHO LEAVES CALDBECK SURGERY AT THE END OF JUNE

Here is a farewell message from Phil:

Twenty-six years after first starting at Caldbeck Surgery, I have decided to move on and will therefore be finishing at the end of June. It has been such a pleasure and a privilege working in our community and my role has given me everything and more than one could possibly wish for in working as a general practitioner.  This has been a really big decision for me and I will be leaving with very mixed feelings.  I will be sad to leave but I will take many happy memories as I embrace new challenges in doing a slightly different line of work

My new role will largely be based at home so we will not be moving away from the area. I will also continue to work alongside the ambulance service and the air ambulance by responding to as many emergency calls as I am able as part of the BASICS network of voluntary pre-hospital care doctors.

I will be replaced at the surgery by Dr Richard Massey who many will already know from when he worked at the surgery a couple of years ago. He has been working in Aspatria for the last 18 months and we are very fortunate that he has decided to return to Caldbeck as a new addition to the partnership.

Saying ‘thank you’ seems wholly inadequate for all the kindness and support that I have been shown by so many people over the years, and I am very grateful and humbled by all the expressions of appreciation and best wishes that I have received as I bow out.

We are all very fortunate to have such a great team in the staff at the surgery and I cannot praise their dedication and commitment highly enough. Despite the challenges facing the health service, and general practice in particular, I know that the surgery at Caldbeck will continue to go from strength to strength.

With very best wishes to all,

Phil Spencer
