End of an era – Dr C retires

Dr Susanta Chaudhuri, of Taff Riverside GP Practice, has decided that now is the time to hang up his stethoscope and retire from General Practice. 

He will be leaving a practice, team of current and past colleagues and all the patients from the local community who he has supported since joining in January 1978. 

He has a very long history in medicine, having first qualified at the University of Calcutta in India in 1967. Moving to the UK in 1969, he completed spells in various hospitals across the country before settling in South Wales a year later. Eight years working in St David’s and Rhydlafar hospitals completed his training.  

Life in a GP practice started in 1978 where he became a partner at Riverside Health Centre joining Dr John James and Dr Carol Gibbs. Becoming the senior partner in 1999, the practice became Taff Riverside Practice that became his “second home” for the next 22 years, a total of 43 years using the same consultation room – possibly the longest serving GP in Cardiff. 

His medical and personal knowledge, his keen sense of humour and dedication, will now be missed by all his patients and all of his past and current colleagues. 

Dr C we wish you a long, safe and healthy retirement as we thank you for all you have done for the NHS and your local community.
