MESSAGE FROM DR HOULTON
I would like to thank all of you who left me cards and gifts and for all of your kind comments and good wishes. I've used the gifted money to buy a Sat Nav for my bike, this will save me hours of getting lost and aimless wandering. Which is not a great use of precious retirement time!
I've been privileged to work as a GP in West Hallam with such a great bunch of colleagues and such nice patients. I've met many remarkable people who have affected me and who I will remember for a long time.
I wish you all well and hope you are spared the need for much doctor attention in the future,
Thank you again
