Farewell to Dr Grant and Charlie


Linwood Medical Centre is sad to say farewell to two great staff members today.

Dr Grant has been a cornerstone of the staff over the past 5 years. With over 1,000 patients under his care, Grant has proven to be a dedicated GP to the Linwood community.

Grant and his family will be leaving for their next adventure soon as he, his wife, and his two boys move to Dubai.

Patients of Grant's can discuss with our front team their preference for a new GP to enrol with. Doctors Katey, Chloe, and Clinton are currently taking on new patients. Additionally, Dr. Ann van Gelswijk will be joining us on 11 March.

Charlie Ballam joined us as a Paramedic Practitioner a year and a half ago. Bringing emergency medicine experience from the UK and Australia, Charlie worked alongside the nurse team with enthusiasm. It was a pleasure to have him and we're sad to see him go.

Charlie and his fiance Dr Sarah George (also an occasional locum with us) will be moving back to the UK as they prepare for their wedding.
