Geoffrey Clifton-Brown - Member of Parliament for The Cotswolds - has greeted the news of the formal merger between the Phoenix Surgery in Cirencester and Romney House Surgery in Tetbury as a promising first step towards restoring Tetbury residents' confidence in their GP service.
Dr Rohit Sethi has accepted the role as the new senior partner for both practices following the merger on 1 February. Clearly with the two practices working together, Tetbury can now look forward to having a first class and well-managed practice in the town for the future.
With 28 years of experience in general practice, Dr Sethi is a highly respected GP in The Cotswolds and the ideal appointment for both practices. Since the announcement of his new post, Dr Sethi has already held one surgery in Tetbury and Mr Clifton-Brown was informed that a new regular rota of partners will be organised to compliment the simultaneous operation of both practices.
Commenting on the announcement the MP said:
'A first class and sustainable GP practice is a necessity for a town the size of Tetbury. I have always emphasized the importance of an adequate GP provision in the constituency and with the merger of the Phoenix and Romney House Surgeries under the command of Dr Sethi I am confident that my constituents in Tetbury will receive the best medical care that they deserve.'
Dr Sethi said:
'I wish to thank Geoffrey for his continued support. I am really looking forward to getting to know Tetbury and its residents better and working with staff to provide an excellent primary care facility in the town.'
