    I wondered if anyone knows if Dr. Bush was a GP?
    My godfather swears that he was one of Dr. Bush’s patients.

    • Dr. Bush was a GP who practiced in Plumstead.

    • Lynn

      He was my doctor – practiced in Plumstead !!

      • Ann Squires ne Watson of Liffler Road Plumstead.

        He was our doctor my self and husband and two children. He told me I was going to be a mum in 1969 for the first time. We left his practice in 1976 when we move to Tonbridge Kent.

          Hey Ann, how comes you didn’t move just across the Kent boarder to Dartford/Bexleyheath??

          I met a friend in SE London other day in Plumstead and walked past Barth road + walked to Plumstead Gardens many memories there!
          My friend Fraser him and his family’s GP was Kate’s dad Robert Bush who worked in South East London in Plumstead. And we used to speak to him loads when he finished work or when we was in Kent in Bexleyheath,Welling, Dartford, Swanley, etc, on our bikes.
          He sometimes gave us a lift back to Kent from Plumstead-Such a nice man! + sometimes said hello to Hannah as well and she would make us massive jug of coled orange squash + met Kate/Del Palmer few times etc
          Great memories I will always cherish! 🥰

    Before the surgery went to bath road. I think it use to be over the other side of the Plumstead Woolwich road. You use to walk through the house out the back and right at the back of the garden was a waiting room. Dr Bush had a sliding door on His surgery which was through a passage through the house from what I remember. A lovely man.

    Dr Bush was our family GP from 1976.
    Absolute amazing man.
    Fond memories of meeting Kate in the surgery waiting room.
    As a young 7 year old I have vivid memories of Dr Bush with an amazing moustache.
