Dear Patients

We would like to announce the retirement of Dr Catherine de Mars & Dr Shehla Jamil from the Chineham Medical Practice on 31 March 2024.

Dr de Mars joined the practice as a GP Trainee in April 1991 and was a Partner from April 1992 until September 2022 when she then became a Locum.

Dr Jamil joined the practice in May 1994 and was a GP Partner for over 28 years before she stepped down to become a Salaried GP with us in April 2022

They have both seen the practice and the NHS through numerous changes during their time at Chineham.

They would both like to thank the patients, dedicated staff, and local community in Chineham for their loyalty, support and understanding over the years.

As a practice we would like to take the opportunity to thank them both for their dedication, inspiration and support to their patients, practice team and all the GP trainees over the years. We will greatly miss their contribution to our service and local community.

We wish them both the very best in their retirement.
