As you may be aware there have been a number of changes at the surgery over recent months not least moving to our new site on the Creake Road.
After some initial teething problems with the IT and telephone infrastructure beyond our control, we are now up and running.
The Burnhams partnership have also taken on the GP Contract at Wells Health Centre from April 2022 with 3 GPs retiring. This is alongside Dr Marcus Brudenell having retired from Burnham Market on the 1st April 2022. We have had to make some difficult decisions to ensure both sites are adequately covered.
We wanted to reassure you that we have successfully recruited and have appointed 2 new GP’s and a nurse practitioner at Burnham Market.
Dr Ferdinand Becker will be joining us in June 2022 and will take on Dr Marcus Brudenell’s list at Burnham Market.
Dr Mark Steggles will be joining us in May 2022 and will be taking on Dr David Ince’s list at Burnham Market.
Drs Sarah Gorrod and Catherine Simpson will remain at Burnham Market.
The Burnhams Surgery and Wells Health Centre will continue to run as separate organisations.
In April and May 2022, Dr David Ince will be working exclusively at Wells to cover prior to substantive GPs being in place.
From June 2022, Dr David Ince will be predominantly at Wells but will offer some sessions and holiday cover at Burnham Market these are to be confirmed.
To ensure his current list has adequate GP cover, Dr Mark Steggles will be assigned to his list also.
We are also being joined in April 2022 by Sister Julie Randall who will lead the nurses and is an experienced nurse practitioner. This is in addition to Sister Carole Ransom who has cut down her hours, Sister Holly Allen, Sister Marie Cressy, Sister Naomi Weston and our health care assistant, Allie Coules.
We are also fortunate to have the services of Drs David Bennett and Douglas Pepple who are offering locum cover during this period.
