Lombard Medical Centre is mourning the loss of one of its long standing partners. Dr Chand Vohrah (55) died peacefully at home with his wife Sandra by his side following a short battle with cancer.
Born in Manchester, Dr Vohrah spent much of his childhood in Malaysia. He trained in London where he was actively involved in research into migraine at St Bartholomew’s Hospital. He arrived in Newark in 1995 where he took up a partnership at what was then Lombard Street Surgeries. He quickly established himself as a committed and skilled GP who was highly regarded by his peers and a firm favourite with staff and patients. He later became a specialist in dermatology and at the time of his death, he worked one day a week in the dermatology clinic at Newark Hospital.
Following his diagnosis, Dr Vohrah married his long-time partner Sandra in a bedside ceremony which Sandra described as ‘emotional and very special’.
Dr David Wathen, Senior Partner at Lombard Medical Centre said: “We are shocked and deeply saddened by the death of Dr Vohrah. He was a consummate professional and a true gentleman. Dr Vohrah was a much loved and respected colleague, partner and friend. He has served the Newark community for over 20 years and will be sadly missed by his partners, staff and patients. Our hearts go out to his wife Sandra and his family at this very sad time.”
The surgery will be closed on Friday 28th October to allow partners and staff to attend his funeral.
