Richard Docker has been providing an excellent service for 20 years both within the NHS and Privately at Sharrow Vale Dental Care. In February Galer became the Principal and Richard decided to reduce his surgery time. As from October 2017 he will only be treating adult patients on a private basis. This will allow him to spend more clinical time with his patients and also to provide a continuity of care, especially for his longstanding patients.  Children of his private patients will still be seen on the NHS.

As Richard is reducing his surgery hours he will only be able to see a limited number of private patients and this will be on a first come, first served, basis. Patients may move to a private ‘fee per item’ basis or become members of Practice plan. In line with our practice policy, NHS spaces will be reallocated to new patients following conversion to private plans. Please contact the surgery for more details.
