    Dr Richard Lloyd – farewell and thanks mate

    Dr Richard Lloyd – farewell and thanks mate

    We all extend our heartfelt thanks and very best wishes to our practice partner Dr Richard Lloyd (pictured top left) – who is retiring from his role as practice partner and full time GP at the end of this month and planning to take some well deserved extended leave.

    It was 29 years ago in 1991 when Richard joined the practice having just completed a year of anaesthetic training in the UK. In tune with the long-held tradition of our practice partners and GPs, Richard also spent the next 24 years in various roles at the Moruya Hospital including GP Visiting Medical Officer (VMO), GP Anaesthetist and GP Obstetrician.

    Dr Lloyd is greatly respected and much loved by his patients and all in our practice and while it’s hard to say goodbye, we extend our sincere thanks and warmest wishes to him and his family.

    Our former practice partner Dr Tim Shepherd has penned this touching memoir and tribute to Dr Lloyd’s wonderful contribution to our community.
