Retirement of Dr Karen Benson

It is with sadness, that I wish to inform all our patients, associated staff, carers and other NHS personnel, that I am retiring as a partner from the practice at the end of December.

I have been at the practice since June 1989 (32 years)!

During this time, I have raised my family of 3 children, and now have 2 grandchildren with whom I wish to spend more time.

It’s been an incredible experience working here, helping patients on their personal health journeys, negotiating the choppy waters of the NHS, especially in the last 2 years during this pandemic.

I am not hanging up my stethoscope entirely-I hope to continue with my dermatology, baby clinics, and to develop my new passion of lifestyle medicine-so you may see me around in 2022.

I want to thank everyone who has been with me during my time here, and to say that it has been a real privilege looking after you all.

Dr Karen Benson
