Announcement – Dr Joanne Mellody is leaving the Practice

The Castle Medical Group wish to inform everyone that Dr Joanne Mellody will be leaving the Practice and the Partnership at the end of July of this year.

Joanne has been with the Practice since 2007 when she joined as a registrar, she then stayed on as a salaried GP before becoming a Partner.

Joanne will be taking up a post as a salaried GP at another practice closer to home.

It has been a difficult decision for Joanne to make, but she hopes it will give her a shorter commute and a better work/life balance.

We wish Joanne all the best in her new position and for the future.  She will be sadly missed.

Please can we remind all patients not to contact the surgery regarding the COVID-19 or flu vaccinations for over 50’s.  We still have no further updates regarding the COVID-19 vaccine programme, nor have we been instructed to vaccinate all over 50’s who are not in the at risk category for flu.

We are still offering flu vaccinations, but only to the vulnerable and at risk groups.  If you have been invited for a flu vaccination, please give us a call to ensure you receive one.  It would be helpful if you could let us know if you do not wish to have the vaccination, this could be done through message on your Patient Access, by email or telephone.

The practice is under immense pressure, as you can imagine, so please can we ask that you do not ring the surgery with any enquiries about either of these vaccinations.  Updates will be on social media and our website.

Thank you for co-operation.
