Patient Update

Dear Patients,

We wish to notify you of GP changes within the practice.

Dr B Tipple will be retiring on 28th May 2020.  Dr Tipple has written a message to all patients below.

“I cannot quite believe that the time has now come. However, it has been 38 years since I started working in the NHS, and 32 years of which have been at Everest House Surgery.  These years have been very special to me; having got to know so many of you very closely.

I have grown up and grown older alongside you and am now looking after three generations of many families.  Thank you for letting me into your lives during some of your most testing and vulnerable moments and also some of your most joyful ones.  It has been a great privilege.

During my years at Everest House Surgery I was also able to serve the wider community by sitting on local health boards, was responsible for bringing the IAPT counselling service to Dacorum and more recently able to help by serving as Trustee at the Hospice of St Francis in Berkhamsted.

It has been an honour and privilege to be your GP and I will miss seeing you all. I wish you all the very best for the future.

With all best wishes.”

Bernie Tipple
