Dr Martin Wakeford - Retirement

We would like to announce the retirement of Dr Martin Wakeford from the Practice on Wednesday 30th March 2022.

Martin has been at the Practice since 1987 and has been instrumental in the many changes that Poplar Grove has seen since that time.  Not only has he been caring for the local population for the past 35 years, but he has also trained many younger GPs, some of whom are still working at the Practice.

Martin will be spending his well-deserved retirement enjoying his hobbies of travel, sailing and spending time with his family.

All his colleagues wish him every happiness and we will miss him enormously.

We do have a retirement book and we are asking patients who wish to add a message to this, please could you email them to admin.poplargrove@nhs.net with a subject heading of "Dr Wakeford Retirement". 

Once we have a named replacement for his patients, they will be informed.  Please note that it will not be possible to just change to other GPs already at the Practice, as their personal lists are already reaching or are at capacity.
