It is with deep regret that we would like to inform our patients that Dr Katy Emslie-Smith is retiring. Her last day is Friday 16 November 2018, however due to annual leave, her last day in surgery will be Friday 26 October 2018.
Dr Emslie-Smith has been with the Erskine Practice for 25 years. She is a much loved and highly respected member of the team. She will be missed by all of us and we are sure the patients will also miss her.
We wish her all the very best for a long and happy retirement.
