Parting is such sweet sorrow!

Many of my existing patients will already be aware of this, but for those of you visiting my website for the first time, there is GOOD NEWS and there is BAD NEWS.

The Bad News first. On 31st March 2018, I shall be retiring from active surgical practice.  Very sorry about that but the time has come!

The Good News. Actually, two lots of good news!

Firstly, my immensely able and experienced colleague, Mr Alan Park, FRCS(Plast.), Consultant Cosmetic & Reconstructive Plastic Surgeon, will be taking over my surgical practice from 1st April.  He will provide continuing care and provide the contact point for all my existing patients and will be happy to accept new referrals (from now onwards) for all conditions (except Rhinoplasty*) via his contact points as follows:-

For new patients: 07468 418 419
Warwickshire Nuffield | 01926 436 351
BMI Meriden | 02476 647 000

Secondly,  I shall continue to offer a service for non-surgical cosmetics, such as Botox, dermal facial fillers and chemical peels.  Please contact Sally, my Secretary at the Nuffield Health Warwickshire Hospital, on 01926-4364341 or on Sally.Bates@nuffieldhealth.com in the usual way or directly off the website which will be getting a new facelift.

I should add that arrangements for my medico-legal practice through Sally Bates at the Nuffield will continue unaltered.

Lastly, to all my present and past patients, all of whom I have looked after to the best of my ability, it has been an enormous honour and privilege to provide care to you. Cases that could have worked out better have been few and far between and I thank you all for coming to see me in the first place and for allowing me to do my best for you, as well as your reciprocal kindness and good cheer.  I shall miss you all, of course, but will take comfort from the happy memories of your company and the pleasure of hopefully helping improve your lives in some small measure.

God bless you all.
