08/08/2022 PRACTICE NEWS


 From Wednesday 10th August we will be implementing a new emergency clinic each day. This is to ensure that patients requiring urgent care are seen appropriately.

Patients requiring an urgent appointment on the day will have this request assessed by the duty doctor, please give as much information as possible to the reception team to pass to the duty doctor.

The duty doctor will then either offer a telephone or face to face consultation on the same day or advise of another more appropriate appointment in the near future.

We are also be increasing the availability of routine appointments for patients to book ahead.

The changes we have made are due to an increased demand for appointments, so please do bear with us as we aim to ensure safe and appropriate care for our patients.


Orchard Surgery is delighted to announce that we have now been fully accredited as a training practice, training GP Registrars.

A GP Registrar is a fully qualified doctor who has already graduated from medical school and completed their first few years as a junior doctor in hospital medicine. Doctors can then chose to specialise as a General Practitioner (GP), and have to undertake a further three years of training in order to qualify as a GP.

 A doctor who is part of this training scheme is known as a GP Registrar. During this three-year training period, GP Registrars undertake training in both hospitals and several GP practices.

 Whilst based at Orchard Surgery, GP Registrars see patients on their own, but have the supervision and support of the GPs in the practice to discuss cases and patient that they have seen.

We would like to welcome our current GP registrar Dr Nur Zainudin
