Friends of Till Orchard
The Friends of Till Orchard (previously Friends of Till Valley Surgery) has been running for several years, predominantly raising funds to help the surgery buy equipment which directly benefits its patients.
In the last two years the group has expanded its role to become a Patient Participation Group. This provides a patient voice on how the practice is run. It also offers a platform for the doctors to feed back changes in the NHS to our patients. We have been fortunate to encourage some of our teenagers to attend along with representatives of our diabetic and disabled community. Everyone is welcome to join us at the meetings or feedback to the group via our Chairman.
Our Chairman is Carole Slater (01980 620415).
Carole has recently attended a Wiltshire-wide meeting of Patient Participation Groups, gleaning helpful information. She is also Chairman of the Shrewton Link Service and the Parish Council so is well placed to bring the strands of community care together.
Our Treasurer is Andrew Tiffin (01980 620924).
