About us

Dr Gillian Orrow, Clinical Neighbourhood Lead

Dr Gillian Orrow (pictured) is the GP lead for Growing Health Together in Horley, having been a GP in the local area for almost a decade.

Dr Orrow is working with a wide range of citizens and local partners to support the establishment of new health-creating initiatives that respond to locally-identified need, and to support and promote existing projects that are supporting health and wellbeing in the area.

Our network

Bringing together local residents and community partners who collectively wish to improve the health and wellbeing of local people, and the delivery of local NHS services.

Our aim is to:

  • Meet with other local people and organisations who are creating health in their area
  • Celebrate all that is going on within the local community
  • Take stock of how relationships between local people, local organisations and the NHS are changing and developing
  • Reflect on local experience of NHS services
  • Shape a collective vision to build upon
