The “Changing of the Guards” this past March saw the departure of Dr Fayez Khalil, who will take up his new position this May as a GP with Cambridge Medical Centre. Quoted as saying “Change is good for the soul”, Dr Khalil is doing just that! We will miss his cheeky grin and bid him farewell. All the best Fayez from Matamata Medical Centre. Leading on from that and new to us is GP – Dr Steven Thrupp, who will take over the care and management of Dr Khalil’s patients. Dr Thrupp is a Matamata local who is happy for the chance to work back in his home town.
