Dear Patients,


It is with great sadness to let our patients know that Dr. Saad Al-Dubbaisi has sadly passed away after being very poorly for a number of weeks.


Dr. Al-Dubbaisi was a much loved, compassionate and experienced GP.  He lived and worked in Bury, and was a popular and caring member of our General Practice community.  Dr. Al-Dubbaisi cared for generations of the same families at our Practice and he will be sorely missed by his work family and patients alike.


Our health and care staff are the people who put themselves on the front line every single day, and our thoughts and condolences are with his wife, children and loved ones at this incredibly difficult time.


A book of condolence is available for patients to share their thoughts and memories in.  In light of social distancing, patients are kindly asked to email their words for us to add to the book to:


Kind regards

Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query. Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits.
