Message from Dr Wagstaff who has now sadly retired from practice

Message from Dr Wagstaff to patients of Castlecroft

I would just like to say a big thank you for all the cards, presents and messages of goodwill received on my retirement. It was most touching to receive so many tokens of appreciation.

It has been a pleasure and a privilege to have served as a GP at Castlecroft for the last 25 years and it is now time for a new chapter in my life.

I am sure you will all continue to support the practice in what is a time of great change in the NHS and primary car in particular.

I wish you all and the practice all the best for the future and , once again, thank you

 Peter Wagstaff
