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 firstname.lastname@example.org
No special skills are required, just an interest in improving the quality of healthcare locally.
Patient Participation Group Committee
The committee consists of Patient representatives from the Practice, the Practice Manager, a member of the Practice staff, the co-ordinator of the Friends of the Practice, and a representative of the Carers. It meets once every three months.
