At the heart of general practice since 1960

GPs keep it in the family

Dr Richard and Dr Julia Pickworth watched proudly as their father Kenneth (centre), a retired GP, opened their new premises in Butterknowle, County Durham, last month.

Dr Pickworth senior, now 81, practised in nearby Barnard Castle for more than 40 years.

Dr Julia Pickworth has practised in Butterknowle for over 20 years and was joined by her brother in 2001.

'It's good that we have kept on the family tradition of general practice,' said Richard. He added: 'So far we haven't fallen out over anything.'
