Dr King saying goodbye to two of his biggest fans.

Dr Derek King’s hard work in Aberdeen is coming to an end.  He held his last clinic this week and it triggered a small flood of messages thanking him for all his hard work.  We thought it would be nice to share them here.  We think it really demonstrates how important the professionals who provide such a fantastic service in Scottish Haemophilia Centres really are.

Here are just some of the comments.

Jackie and John say,

Great guy looked after my two boys well all through the 80’s and early 90’s had many encounters with him both day and night . All the very best to him for a long and happy retirement!

Lynn says,

Dr King will be missed. I hope Mrs King enjoys seeing a lot more of him. All the best for a long and happy retirement.

Danielle says,

Shelley says,

He looked after my fiancé, Craig Long in the 70s and 80s too. He will be a big miss. All the best for a well deserved retirement.
