Christchurch Medical Practice is very sorry to inform you that Dr Jenkinson has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, a type of lung cancer related to historical asbestos exposure. Whilst he remains positive and is exploring treatment options with specialists he has decided to seek early retirement to spend as much time as possible with family and friends. He says that whilst it has been a pleasure and privilege to work as a GP in the community for the past 26 years this latest news means that he has reluctantly decided to leave the role. He would like us to pass on his best wishes to patients and colleagues alike and apologises for his sudden departure.
