A Roslin GP is finally hanging up his stethoscope as he prepares to retire after more than 30 years serving the local community.
Dr Ludovic McIntosh stepped down as partner from Roslin Medical Practice three years ago but kept his hand in to offer support to the new team of doctors.
He officially retires after joining Dr William Donaldson and Dr John Pope at 6 Main Street as a trainee in 1981.
After Dr Donaldson retired, a new partnership was formed involving Dr Pope, Dr McIntosh and Dr Jackie McDonald, which stayed unchanged for many years.
Dr McIntosh was at the helm when the practice moved to a new facility on Penicuik Road.
The number of patients has increased to more than 5,000.
“I am very pleased and thoroughly enjoyed working with the whole team. The staff have been indispensable.
“They have been so reliable and been a great asset,” said Dr McIntosh in tribute to his colleagues.
Born in Edinburgh, Dr McIntosh (63) lived in the Belgian Congo for four years as a child.
