Dr Richard Hall
After 28 years at Crossley Street Surgery, Dr Richard Hall is retiring from the Practice on 6th April 2020.
Dr Hall has been our Senior Partner and has led the Practice since 2012, always ensuring that patient care is at the forefront of all decisions, changes and adaptations we make.
We know he will be greatly missed by both patients and colleagues.
If Dr Hall is your registered GP you will be contacted in due course regarding the name of your new registered GP. In any event you can make an appointment to see any of the GP team to continue your care.
We appreciate that patients may wish to see Dr Hall to express their gratitude for his years of service in Wetherby, but would ask that you do not use a medical appointment for this purpose.
Dr Ellis Rickwood will now become our Senior Partner and further details will follow in due course regarding our new GP structure.
Following the retirement of Dr Hall, the practice will have limited resources to provide joint injections for patients.
The appointments are considered routine appointments and there may be a wait of several weeks before being able to see a suitably qualified GP
