    Thoughts and prayers to Rob & his family at this distressing time.
    Dr Bailey has been my GP all of my life and he is the best Doctor I could have hoped for. He has seen me through some terrible times and is always so thoughtful and caring in everything he does. He treats people as individuals and always makes time for everyone. His knowledge & experience is second to none.
    I am deeply saddened that he is currently missing & I pray he is found safe and well soon.

      He has also been my doctor for 28ish years since he started at the cathedral square doctors surgery many years ago, he replaced Dr Catnak when he retired I beleave.

    Yes Stuart he did replace Dr catnach . I remember the old surgery very well the time you had to take a ticket and wait your turn . Or even just ask people who were in front of you . .I suppose the drs have been advised not to speak about it .until something definite has been confirmed . I hope his family get closure . He’s such a lovely gp and person .
