A long-serving Exmouth GP is hanging up her stethoscope after 30 years serving the community.

Helen Enright is retiring from Rolle Medical Partnership, having worked there since 1984.

When she joined the practice she was the junior partner in a team of five, and she now leaves as the senior in a team of 11.

When asked what it was she had enjoyed that made her want to stay so long, she said: “Everything, really. I like general practice and family medicine, and looking after whole families. I have seen babies who I saw when they were born growing up and having their own children, and being involved in people’s lives like that is a great privilege.

“It’s like having an enormous family, and my colleagues are a family as well. It’s just been a lovely place to be.”

In her retirement, Helen, who lives near Woodbury Salterton, says she plans to take up beekeeping, as well as spend more time with husband Terry and their grandchildren.

Rolle Medical Partnership practice manager Linda Kay said: “She will be greatly missed by everyone at the practice and her patients, and we wish her a happy retirement and thank her for everything.”
