Tiptree Medical Centre Open Morning and Engagement Event
Tiptree Medical Centre
Saturday 25th May from 9am
We would like to invite all our patients to attend an open morning at the practice on 25th May to give patients the opportunity to meet with Doctors and staff and allow patients the opportunity to observe what goes on ‘behind the scenes’ at the practice and understand the processes in place for providing primary care to the local community.
The practice will open to patients from 9am until 11am. Our Patient Participation Group will also be on hand to explain their involvement in the decisions made within the practice.
From 11am the senior doctors will be holding some engagement forums. This will give an opportunity for patients to discuss the medical centre services provided and put forward any ideas and suggestions on how the practice can develop in line with a growing local population coupled with the constraints and challenges within the NHS. There will also be a question and answer session where the senior doctors will be happy to discuss any matters raised by patients.
Due to limited space within the practice there will be 3 forums held during the day. If you would like to attend please speak to a member of the reception team who will discuss the times available to attend.
