Dr Andrew Bowes retired on 31/01/2024 after 40 years as a GP at HHMP
After 40 years working as a local GP in the hunters hill community, the 31st of January 2024 was Dr Andrew Bowes’ last day. 40 years working in the same community, looking after the same patients is an amazing achievement and many of his patients turned out for an afternoon tea and a chat. It was a huge event which shows the high regard that Dr Bowes and HHMP are held in the community.
Dr Bowes spoke at the event about his early days at HHMP and how the practice has changed and grown, now offering patients a myriad of services in their local community. This brings trusted specialist and allied health services to the patients and ensures better teamwork and communication between all the different health professions involved.
Dr Bowes has always championed medical student and registrar education. Many of the team at HHMP have benefited from this. This commitment to education is part of HHMP and will certainly continue.
Before he retired, Dr Bowes was involved in the selection of new doctors to join HHMP and look after his patients. Many patients have been handed over to these doctors and this will ensure excellent continuity of care. The HHMP team is keen to continue to look after patients of Dr Bowes and our reception and nursing team are available to help patients select a GP that will continue to meet their needs.
We wish Dr Bowes all the best for the next chapter of his life.
