Have your say on the future of Orchard House Surgery, Lydd

NHS Kent and Medway Clinical Commissioning Group is planning the future of Orchard House Surgery, Bleak Rd, Lydd, Romney Marsh, TN29 9AE.

Orchard House Surgery in Lydd is currently managed by a group of GPs, who have made the decision to stop providing services there after 30 April 2021.

It is the CCG’s priority to make sure that all patients who are registered at Orchard House Surgery can continue to access a full range of GP services at the surgery after this date. This is a priority requirement for selecting a new provider.

We are talking to patients, local stakeholders, and Healthwatch Kent about how the surgery should be run from 1 May 2021. 

Until then, patients can access GP services as usual.

You can find some questions and answers relating to Orchard House surgery here.
