Retirement Statement – Dr Susan Gardiner

It is with regret that I have to announce that I will be retiring due to ill-health at the end of February 2022.  I know a number of you have been wondering where I have been the last 10 months.  In April 2021 I was diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer.  I had hoped that it would be possible for me to get back to clinical work but unfortunately my treatment and its side effects means that isn’t possible.

I am hoping to still be able to do a little admin work in the surgery so you might see me about at times, feel free to give me a wave.

I have been proud to help provide medical care to the people of Kilwinning over the last 17 years and be involved in training the GPs of the future. I wish all of our patients well and would like to thank my colleagues for their continued support.
