It is with sadness that we announce the retirement of Dr Penny Brooke.
Penny has worked at Theale Medical Centre for 29 years and has decided that now is the right time to step down and spend more time with her family and friends and will finish at Theale at the end of March 2022. She would like to say a huge thank you to the fantastic colleagues she has worked with:
“I have been extremely lucky to work at Theale with an amazing group of dedicated doctors, nurses and other clinical staff as well as the incredibly hard-working team in reception, dispensary and admin who enable us to do our job. I will genuinely miss you all. I would also like to say a huge thank you to the wider community in Theale and the surrounding area, it has been a privilege and an honour to work with you.”
In anticipation of this we were lucky to be able to recruit new doctors last year with Dr Hungwe joining us in August. Dr Brooke’s patients will be looked after by the existing team and will receive a letter telling them who their new doctor will be.
She will be greatly missed by patients and staff alike but all of us are enormously grateful for her hard work and dedication shown over the years.
We wish her a long and happy retirement.
