After 21 years working at Longshoot Health Centre, I have decided that it it time for a new challenge. It has been a great privilege to serve the many people and families who have chose me as their family doctor over the last 2 decades. I shall be extremely sad to leave patients, colleagues and staff, but now my children have grown up and become more independent I want to take the opportunity to pursue other interests. Many of you are aware of my passion for choral and classical singing along with my interest in arts and crafts. I intend to share my time between these creative activities, the hospice and supporting my elderly parents in their strive to maintain their independence.

I hope that you will continue to support this traditional family general practice as newer GP colleagues take over. I shall remember you all, both the happy and sad times i have shared in your lives.

With best wishes,


Dr Caroline Rayner
