Representatives from East Riding of Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) last week, 23 June 2021, officially handed over two plaques to the local GP practice in Withernsea.
The plaques recognise that, since 1922, three generations of the Fouracre family have been senior partners and family doctors working in Withernsea. As well as being local GPs, Dr SF Fouracre was the Chief Medical Officer at the old hospital in Withernsea from 1930 to 1953 as was Dr AF (Tony) Fouracre from 1962 to 1987.
The Fouracre Suites, at the Withernsea community hospital, were also supported by the Withernsea Hospital League of Friends and have helped look after many local residents over the years. With the kind permission of the local GP practice, Councillor, Health Forum and residents, the plaques have been framed for display in the practice to preserve their important, local, historical value.
Pictured: Marlene Seddon (Marlene has been with the GP practice for over 25 years and worked very closely with at least two of the three Dr Fouracres), Dr Fitzsimons (GP), Dr Blackbourn (GP), Quintina Davies (CCG), Cllr Lyn Healing (Ward Councillor), Brian Cloke (local resident).
