A Message from Dr Black

After 32 years I have decided to call it a day before I overstay my welcome!  It has been a pleasure and privilege to serve at Betts and I take with me so many happy memories.

General Practice has changed immeasurably over the course of my carer - not always for the better!

Looking back my greatest satisfaction has come from delivering old style family medicine. Many of the children I looked after as babies in 1980's and 1990's are now parents in their own right.  Indeed together with my father there have been Dr Black's working at this practice for over 60years.

Still nothing goes on forever and it is time for new blood and fresh idea's.

I have every confidence in the long term future of the practice and wish my successors all good fortune.

I shall be leaving the practice on Monday 5th February but until then it is business as usual!

With all good wishes

David Black
