Margaret Keegan RIP
It is with great sadness that we inform you of the untimely death of our Practice Manager Margaret Keegan.
She served this practice and patients as well as the wider community selflessly for over 20 years.
The very high attendance at her funeral, held on Wednesday 12th January at St. Aidens RC Church, Kingsthorpe, was indicative of the love and very high regard in which she was held.
Our thoughts and condolences go out to her family and friends at this very sad time.
A book of rememberance is being kept at the surgery reception.
