EAST IPSWICH PRIMARY CARE NETWORK

Orchard Medical Practice is part of the East Ipswich Primary Care Network (PCN).  We work closely with Ravenswood Medical Practice and Dr Solway, Mallick & Roy Practice.  We jointly employ and share a number of staff who work across all three practices, currently those staff  employed by the PCN, consist of Paramedics, Pharmacists and Social Prescribers - By working together closely we aim to learn good practice from each other to Improve our services and access to healthcare for the 36000 patients that live locally and are registered with our practices.  

The long term objective is to continually improve and develop our teams in a way that only working at scale can achieve.  This means for you the patient, that we aim to have a wider range of expert practitioners within our teams enabling you to consult with the most appropriate person.  

As the PCN develops we will keep you updated as to any significant changes that may affect the way our services are delivered.

Reception

Our receptionists will be your first point of contact with the practice.

They endeavour at all times to be friendly and helpful.  We believe their role to be extremely important and ask them to work at all times within the strict guidelines laid down by practice policies.

The receptionist may ask you a few questions about your illness in order to make sure the appointment you make is appropriate for your needs.  You have the right to decide who you disclose information to and our staff are trained to respect this.

Several of our receptionists also act as the practice healthcare assistants.
