Welcome to Orchard Medical Practice. An introduction to us:
Orchard Medical Practice started as a Partnership of 6 Doctors in April 1996, at The Health Centre on St John Street Mansfield.
In 2001 the Partnership moved out of the Health Centre and in to a listed building called 'Innisdoon' on Crow Hill Drive, Mansfield. The building was very characteristic and it was unfortunate with our patient list size growing and compliance requirements it was time to look for a bigger premises. We also took on another GP to make a total of 7 Partners.
In November 2012, the practice moved in to a purpose built ward within Mansfield Community Hospital which provided us with more clinical rooms, 2 waiting areas, facilities for x-ray & physiotherapy on site and a bigger car park with disabled bays. The Partnership continued to grow to 8 Partners and so did our list size to approx 12,500.
In April 2014 we merged with Drs Law & Mountcastle to make 10 Partners and a combined list size of 17,604. We are proud no redundancies were made through the merger and in fact we have increased our nursing and non-clinical staff.
Dr Phipps retired in April 2017 and Dr Kathryn West took his place as a Partner. We currently have 10 Partners.
Our patient list size as of June 17 is 19,095.
We do listen to our patients if things have not gone so well and we make every effort to make put things right.
