Alan Heath is retiring from Southgates Medical and Surgical Centre and NSDC (Norfolk Surgical and Diagnostic Centres) in Lynn with his last working day being April 16.
Dr Heath has led and run the NSDC clinics at the Coach House at Southgates for many years. He has been a partner at Southgates GP practice since September 1984 and served the Norfolk population since 1981.
Dr Heath, a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons, said, “I’ve worked in Norfolk as a local GP and surgeon for over 30 years and served the local community to help ease pressure from local hospitals.
“A passion of mine is to enable surgery to be carried out in local GP practices for those patients that may not need to go to hospital and would prefer to be treated in a local, friendly and convenient environment.”
