Some of you may be aware that Dr Paul Strickland has been very unwell in recent years.


We are very sad to pass on the news that Paul passed away peacefully at home on Thursday   9th July 2020 in the presence of his family.


Paul's contribution to the surgery was very significant for the many years that he was a Partner with us; he left the surgery to join UEA to continue the training of future doctors that he had started when at the surgery.


We appreciate that many patients will remember their contact with him at Elmham and Swanton Morley Surgeries and will want to mark his passing. For this reason we are opening a book of remembrance at both surgeries. If you would like to make an entry, please come to either surgery where a safe area will be set aside for this. A sanitising station will be available for you to use.

Alternatively please leave comments here or on our website, we will include them in the book and pass them on to his family.


Dr Paul Strickland was a kind and generous man who cared for patients and staff alike, he was a joy to work with.
