A sad farewell to Dr Sheikh who will be leaving the practice
After 28 years in General Practice Dr Sheikh has made the difficult decision to leave the practice on 30th September 2018 (his last working day was Tuesday 11th September) to take up more time with his family. We are sad to see him go, he has been our Senior Partner and has taken the practice forward in so many ways over the years. We wish him all the very best for the future.
Extended Opening Hours
From 5th June 2017 we started our new opening hours until 8 pm Monday to Friday as well as Saturday mornings until 11.45 am. We are the only practice in Mansfield & Ashfield who are offering these extended hours and being able to see a healthcare professional who is part of Orchard Medical Practice. These appointments are also bookable on line.
Sunday appointments are also available - these appointments will be based at Primary Care 24, please book these by speaking to one of our receptionists at the practice.
