HHC Re-union 2023_02

Long term residents of Haddenham will, of course, remember the original Haddenham Health Centre, housed in the building next to the library on the corner of Churchway and Banks Road, and now providing a home for the FitLife gym.

Our GPs in those days included Drs Jonathan Sadler, Hugh Stradling, Robin Wilson and Alison Vickers, and the Practice Manager was Pam Bright.

Your current website editor enjoyed a close working relationship with all the Health Centre staff in the 1980s and 1990s, as part of the original Patient Participation Group that was founded by the late John Landon. Some residents may recall the "Haddenham Health News" that was published quarterly for many years, as a vehicle for important GP Practice communications and other health-related matters.

On Saturday 25th February a large group of former Health Centre colleagues, together with their partners, met together for a grand staff reunion.
