Orchard House Surgery serves the whole of Workington as well as it's surrounding area, to Flimby boundary, to Broughton boundary and across to Distington boundary.
Our team includes 4 GPs, 2 Senior Nurses, 1 Health Care Assistant, 2 Practice Managers, Medicine's Manager, 6 Admin Staff, 4 Reception staff and 1 Apprentices
We offer a full general practice service and run specialist clinics, for diabetes, coronary heart disease, epilepsy, hypertension, hypothyroid, stroke and minor surgery.
At Orchard House Surgery we aim to treat all our patients promptly, courteously and in complete confidence. We feel it is important you know who you are speaking to, so our practice staff wear a name badge and identify themselves on the telephone.
If you live in our practice area and would like to register with us, please complete one of our registration forms that are available from our receptionists. On the form you will be able to say which practitioner you would prefer to see. However, you will be registering with the practice rather than an individual GP.
Orchard House Surgery are changing the clinical system we use from INPS/Vision to Emis Web.
We believe this change will result in an improved service to our Patients.
As an online user, you will need new registration and pin codes which will be sent out to you once we are live on Emis Web. There will also be a link on the Practice website with instructions.
We would ask that you do not use the online service from Monday 28th November. Please contact the Surgery for appointments and prescription requests after this date.
We will endeavour to get the necessary information out to you as soon as is possible after our go live date (8th December)
Please note that clinical work always takes priority over administration such as this, so please bear with us if it takes a little longer.
