Dr Nelson’s retirement thank you

April 8 2019
A thank you message from Dr Nelson & a separate message from Janet Cordell his assistant who retired at the same time.

Letter from Dr Nelson

Dear Members of the SGKPA & patients,


Many thanks for thinking of me as I set off on a new chapter of life, retirement. 

A particular thanks to all those who sent a personal message.

The joint National Trust membership for my wife (Nandita) and I is a very thoughtful gift as I can persuade her to leave work commitments and enjoy the wider world. Then when she does retire, we will have some joint retirement plans.

The very first patient I saw as a third-year medical student was a gentleman with renal failure on dialysis and I have involved with renal patients for most of the intervening 38 years. It has been a stimulating career working with people who have a deep interest in their condition and their renal unit.

You have done some great things for St Georges renal patients and I am sure will continue to do so in the future.


Very Best Wishes


Steve Nelson



Letter from Janet Cordell

Dear Michael


Thank you so much for representing the patients at Steve’s and my retirement party on Friday.  It was lovely to have you there and I hope you had an enjoyable evening. 

Thank you again for the beautiful flowers which are adorning my house and for the swimming goggles which will be put to very good use.  If you have the opportunity, please thank all the patients for me and I wish all of them and you all the very best for the future.

Kind regards.
