After being a GP Partner at Moordown Medical Centre for over eight years, Dr Chris Elfes has formally announced his decision that sadly he will be leaving us in July 2020. Dr Elfes has given excellent service and dedication to his patients and work colleagues alike. He will be greatly missed.


At the same time, we are delighted to announce that Dr Helen Wright will take over his role as a GP Partner. 

We are also pleased to welcome Dr Laura Foster to the practice team.

 We would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr Elfes for all his hard work and support over the years and wish him good luck in the future. He is continuing to work in his other roles across medical assessment and education, but also intends to spend some time working abroad.
