We now have a Patient Participation Group which aims to:
- Contribute to continuous improvement of services
- Help patients take more responsibility for their health
- Assist improved communication between the practice and our patients
- Provide practical support and help to implement change
We are keen to ensure that the views are representative of our patient population and would particularly like to hear from:
- Patients under 25 years old
- Patients with chronic disease
- Patients who are housebound
- Patients with a disability
Thinking of Joining a PPG
You may also be asked to comment on the outcomes from surveys and how best to make any changes to existing systems & services or how to introduce new ones. We have found this is the best way for our Patient Participation Group to flourish. We also have the Friends and Family Test which we encourage all patients to participate in and because of the ethos of our practice (open and friendly) we hope that patients feel comfortable to express their comments about us without having any constraints of bureaucracy.
If you are interested in taking part, please contact the Surgery and ask for our Patient Participation Group Coordinator.
If you prefer, you can download the sign up form as a pdf document, print it out, complete it and return it to the practice.
