Dr Hans R Bance 

Dear Patients 

After over 30 years of service here at the practice, I have decided that the time is now right for me to fully retire from General Practice on 30th June 2018.  

There have been many exciting changes in the practice and these are continuing to help us thrive going into the future. 

It has been both a pleasure and a privilege to have been able to treat you all over the years and to be part of the Castleford & Methley community.


Thank you. 

I wish you all the very best. 

Dr Hans R Bance
