ONE of the founding partners of a Knutsford clinic has been wished a fond farewell by her colleagues and clients.

Gail Crawford, from Knutsford, has retired from the Carmichael Clinic of Physiotherapy and Acupuncture at King Edward House, where she has been treating injured clients for 25 years.

Gail said her retirement would be filled with ‘wonderful grandma duties’, which she was looking forward to greatly.

Her final day was celebrated by staff and some of her clients, with Gail receiving flowers and champagne from the clinic.

Joanne Middleton, senior partner, thanked Gail for her hard work, support and dedication over the 25 years.

Gail said she took with her ‘so many personal memories with many clients over the years’.

She said: “We are very privileged to have one-to-one time with people and see them moving forwards with their lives.

“Knutsford is a wonderful community and I look forward to bumping into many of them locally.

“It's a fantastic team at the clinic, and I have had a fantastic career.”

The clinic is led by partners Joanne Middleton, Rebecca Jackson and Rachel Wylie.
