Message from Dr Fiona Ironside
I wanted to let you all know that I am leaving Lowther as a partner at the end of the month.
My decision is driven by family responsibilities. Many of you will know I have a grandchild whose father has immunosuppression. As a result of Covid, the only way I can see him is to self-isolate for 14 days before I visit. This is not a fair request for the practice to support and as such I have asked that I do some locum sessions when needed but no regular work pattern. This means I will still be around but on an as needed basis.
The Practice leadership has passed to Dr Ami Hall. She is very capable, very talented and very enthusiastic. I leave you in safe hands.
The last 8 years of my working life has been here at Lowther. It has been a difficult period in NHS history and hard work. Despite that I have loved working here and will be very sad to leave both staff and patients.
I would like to wish you all the very best for the future.
