Dear Patients,

I am writing to inform you that I will no longer be a partner at Derby Road Group Practice as of the 1st of April 2018.  This was a very difficult decision for me, but, due to my other commitments this was the right thing to do.  Some of you may know that I also work at Portsmouth Hospital and as a Director for Portsmouth Primary Care Alliance (a federation that links all GP Practices in Portsmouth together).  The collective workload has been intense and this decision was to gain more of a work life balance.

I have enjoyed being your GP for the last 7 years and I thank everyone of you for helping us build a great doctor-patient relationship.

I will still be a practising Doctor in Portsmouth area but not solely located at one GP Practice.  It has been an unbelievable and enjoyable time for me at derby road Group Practice and I shall miss it dearly.

Good luck to all of you in the future and keep healthy!

with kind regards

Dr Rumi Chhapia
