Phoenix Announcement – Dr Ian Simpson

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dr Ian Simpson, after battling a long illness.

Dr Simpson retired from The Phoenix Surgery in November 2015 after over 30 years at the Practice. He was a lovely man who was kind, fair and supportive alongside being an excellent and highly respected family GP.
