Dr Grimmer will sadly be leaving us…

After 12 years at Hathaway, Dr Philip Grimmer will be leaving us in early July.  Dr Grimmer joined us as a locum GP in 2012 and became a GP partner in 2013.  He has been involved with training and examining junior doctors and has been our practice lead for diabetes, dementia and mental health.  He has been the principal investigator for our clinical trials and for the past 5 years has been one of the clinical directors for our local primary care network.

“I have enjoyed my time at Hathaway and caring for the people of Chippenham.  However, after a lot of thought, I have decided that it is time for a change and for an adventure!  I have accepted a position as a GP on Vancouver Island in Canada and will be moving there with my family this summer.  I hope I have been able to help many of my patients through difficult times and I will miss being a GP here immensely.”
