Dr Tony Geach

It is with great sadness that we report that our former senior partner, and greatly respected colleague, Dr Tony Geach died on Friday 28th March 2014, at his home in Shropshire. Dr Geach had served the community of Brighton Hill for over thirty years, before his retirement in 1996 and subsequent move to the Welsh borders. We know that many of our patients will also remember him fondly and will wish to be aware of this sad news. Dr Geach leaves his wife Ann and daughter Helen. The family has asked that any donations go to the NET Patient Foundation.
