Patient Participation Group at Orchard Medical Practice
Patient Participation refers to patients who are taking an active interest in healthcare which gives you, the local people a say in how our services are planned, developed and evaluated, by developing a good working relationship with the Practice Staff and GPs.
Our members get involved in CCG consultations, carry out surveys seeking your opnion on various matters, from this, we consider changes that you may feel are needed to improve the services and then implement them wherever possible.
We meet at the practice on regular basis dates of which are displayed around the practice. However, if you are unable to attend these meetings we would still like to hear from you. You can become a Virtual Member. Click on the link at the bottom to view the form.

This is a group which has been set up in response to patients who have said they would like to be involved in the Patient Participation Group but are unable to attend meetings. As a member of the Virtual Participation Patient Group we will send you emails asking you for your opinion on a range of topics such as what you think about our opening times or the quality of the care or service you received. You decide how often and when you would like to answer. We need young people, workers, retirees, people with long term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups.
