Thank you, Hazel
After more than 21 years of service, our Nursing Manager, Hazel D'Alvarez, is leaving us to embark on a new chapter in her life. Hazel has been responsible for leading and developing an exceptionally skilled team of nurses, who are a credit to their profession and to the practice. Hazel herself has a wealth of invaluable experience, and she will be sorely missed. We wish her well in her new venture on the south coast, and would like to thank her for her great contribution to the history of Leacroft Medical Practice. Hazel's last day will be Friday 29th July.
Hazel is second from the right above, and second from the left below.
On Wednesday 13th July, we were proud to host some local charities and organisations who came to Leacroft to provide information to our patients. The organisations involved were the Carers Support service, who offered advice about the support available to carers both young and old; Springboard Project, a local community-based charity who support disabled children and young people in developing active social lives with inclusive recreational activities; and representation from the International Glaucoma Association, who raised awareness of the disease and the help available to those affected.
The day was very successful, and we would like to thank everyone involved. If you would like any further information about any of the services please contact the Practice.
