Patients, Your Surgery Needs You!!
As a patient of Orchid House Surgery you are automatically a member of our Patient Participation Group after registration and we value your constructive input.
The group is run by a volunteer committee working in close liaison with the doctors and practice manager.
Due to time constraints and group members outside commitments, we have developed a virtual Patient Participation Group, which will in effect be an Email community that we can therefore consult with on a regular basis. We aim to gather around as broad a spectrum as possible to get a truly representative sample. We need Young people, workers, retirees, people with long term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups.
The group can work with the practice to help all patients to take responsibility for their own health, that of their family and the health of the wider community.
To join our patient participation group please fill out the form below, alternatively you can print out a copy of our sign up form (found at the bottom of this page under the header Useful Downloads), fill it out and return to the surgery.
