We would like to inform you that Dr Jonathan Cope has decided to step down as a partner of Beacon Medical Group, taking affect from the end of January.
In recent weeks Dr Cope has decided to scale down his commitment to Beacon to enable him to take some much needed down time with his family and also to pursue his interests in supporting a local charity providing support to remote communities in Ghana.
Jonathan has been a key member of the Beacon team and has been at the helm of some of the biggest changes and innovations across the Group. This was recognised by in the General Practice Awards in 2016 when Jonathan was announced as Pulse’s GP of the Year.
Jonathan has been involved in supporting and fundraising under the guidance of colleagues Freda Allen and Jo Beer who are developing an outreach health service for remote communities in Ghana. Along with a team of 11 medical professionals and enthusiastic teenagers they hope to raise funds for the project and provide medical care. The teenagers of the group will help with building schools, teaching classroom lessons and sport.
The group are also hopeful that they will also have an ambulance to take!
Jonathan has kindly asked that if any staff or patients who would like to offer tokens of appreciation, to donate money to this incredible cause in lieu of any gifts. Jonathan would also appreciate donations of classroom supplies, such as pens paper, books and general stationary or sports kit.

We would like to thank Dr Jonathan Cope for his hard work and commitment to the development of the Practice, his high quality clinical care of his patients as well as his support to all our staff.
