Message of thanks to Patients from Dr Houlahan

Thank you all for the many expressions and notes of gratitude that I have received following my official retirement. When I started in the old surgery at Bate Street 34 years ago with Dr Barry I felt very privileged to be able to serve the local population. I always felt a genuine warmth from you all as I went about my work. One of the satisfying aspects of this job is meeting the children of those babies whom I saw in the early days during the postnatal visits and have observed them grow up over the years and now have started families of their own..

Moving to St Peters was a great benefit for all as it accommodated a growing practice population and enabled us to expand our team. The staff here I believe are the best . They go out of their way to assist wherever they can and are equally frustrated with the pressures that are placed upon them as the workload has increased. I am confident however that this teamwill go from strength to strength and continue to provide good care to you all..
