We have had a few staff changes over the last few months: one of our lovely nurses, Leanne Pottinger, left in June to start a career in recruitment. In August one of our wonderful receptionists, Beverley Harden, who has worked for us for 15 years, left to spend more time with her family. We wish them both all the best in their new ventures.
We welcomed a new nurse, Smriti Ale, in June and Samantha Whatmore joined our reception team in August.
We were delighted to welcome back Laura Mason, Andrew’s nurse who returned from her maternity leave on 7th September.

We’re looking forward to Aman returning to work next week

Chernobyl Charity - August 2014
It was a great pleasure to meet the delightful Anna and Anastasiya.
They are being hosted by a family in Berkshire through the charity Chernobyl Children's Lifeline, who provide four-week recuperation breaks for children affected by the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster.
During their stay in the UK the children are taken to have their teeth checked as they only have access to very basic dental care in Ukraine. https://www.ccll.org.uk/ho/
