TRIBUTES have been paid after the death of a "much-loved" Bradford GP. 

Dr Nadeem Khan, a partner at Tong Medical Practice, passed away earlier in the week. 

A statement on its website says: "Dr Khan’s death was unexpected, and of course a shock to our staff.

"Dr Khan was well known and respected amongst our patients, as well as being a much loved member of our local community.

"He will be sorely missed by all of us here at Tong Medical Practice – and by our patients.

"Please bear with our staff as they are doing a fantastic job in making sure that we continue to run services as normal, under difficult circumstances.

"Thank you for your support and understanding at this time."

Tributes have also been left on Islam Bradford's Facebook page. 

One described him as a "lovely, kind man", while another said he was a "true gentleman with such kindness and compassion for his patients". 

One person wrote: "RIP Dr Khan, not only a good doctor but a wonderful man."
