Laurel House Surgery

 

We were very sad to hear of the death of Dr. John Weston-Smith on New Year’s day .

 

Dr Weston-Smith had been a GP in Tamworth and at Laurel House Surgery for many years. Indeed, Laurel House was both his surgery and family home for a long time. Older patients will recall that the upstairs consulting rooms were “the boys” bedrooms. He was a kind quick witted man with a real interest in the psychological aspects of health. He,as many GP’s of his time, did home deliveries, cared for patients in Tamworth General and he introduced the first Practice Nurse in the country into Laurel House. He was a kind and nurturing colleague and an easy insightful patient.

 

We will think of him , his great legacy, as well as his family, both living and deceased at this very sad time .

 

May John rest in peace.


 

Shingles Vaccination 2017-18

Following last year's campaign, the practice will once again be immunising eligible patients against shingles. The shingles vaccine will be given as a single injection and you will only need to have the vaccination once.

We will be sending appointments to all of those eligible for the vaccination to attend clinics in October 2017.

These appointments are longer than for routine Flu vaccinations but can be given at the same time as your Flu vaccination.

Laurel House Surgery would like to welcome

Dr Natasha Turley

Dr Turley joined the practice on Tuesday 5th September 2017. 

Dr Turley works Tuesday, Thursday & Friday providing a combination or morning and afternoon appointments. She also offers Tuesday evening extended hour sessions alternate weeks.

Most of Dr Sareen patients transferred over into the care of Dr Turley. 

We are very lucky to have recruited Dr Turley into the practice and we hope that everyone makes her feel very welcome.
