Patient Participation Group
The Practice has an active Patient Participation Group which meets quarterly on a Wednesday evening here at the surgery.  It works closely with the staff team and represents the views of all the patients.  The group’s successes include: 

  • raising the concerns of individuals which affect the running of the Practice
  • ensuring that nearly every household receives a copy of the practice newsletter and will continue to do so. 
  • supporting health education (e.g. the Weight Management evening) and the Expert Patient Programme
  • supporting Carers
  • supporting the Practice in its responses to the NHS when needed.

If you would like further information about the activities of this group, would like to join, or simply attend a meeting without obligation, please contact the Practice Manager on 01305 848333 or by e-mail to

No special skills are required, just an interest in improving the quality of healthcare locally.
