Retirement Notice – Dr Simon Edwards

Dr Simon Edwards MBBS MRCGP has worked at Sands End Health Clinic, caring for patients and as an integral member of our practice team for nearly thirty years. It is therefore with mixed feelings that we announce his retirement at the end of September 2022.

We will miss his sideways take on life, level headedness and humour but wish him well and new adventures during his well-earned retirement.

Ending my last year as a partner I am sad to leave such a stimulating and enjoyable practice. I have benefitted hugely from working with patients who have inspired and challenged me to work and think differently. Every generation of doctor oversees huge changes in their lifetime. For me it seems extraordinary to think I started medicine in a world pre-internet and mobile phones and have finished it having introduced video and online consultations to a ‘care navigation’ process I helped create – a process which helped keep our staff and patients safe and medically supported here, during the pandemic.

I am proud of the phenomenal team I have helped assemble and am confident that I can retire now, happy and in good health, without any disruption to the practice.

I sincerely thank everyone for the past twenty-seven years!
