Dr Jonathan Wilkinson Retiring (updated 16/06/2020)

On the 10th July 2020, Dr Jonathan Wilkinson will be retiring. A graduate of Birmingham Medical school, Dr Wilkinson joined Harbury Surgery in 1995 when he replaced Dr Wilne, and he has remained a GP partner at the practice for the past 25 years. 


Over the years, Dr Wilkinson has been a dedicated Doctor, and has seen lots of changes during his time in family medicine. He has got to know many of his patients well. Children he treated at the start of his career are now parents themselves, such is the longevity of his time in Harbury and Bishops Itchington. 


He has been a great asset to the practice, and we would like to wish him a long & happy retirement.
