Telephone Contact

Your telephone call is important to us, and we understand that you want to speak to us as quickly as possible.  If you are telephoning about a repeat prescription or information about test results, please call AFTER 11.00 am. 

 

Repeat Prescriptions

If you wish to order a repeat prescription you can use our dedicated Repeat Prescription line on 01305 217037 and leave a message.  Remember you must allow at least two working days before you need it (we need time to print the script, order the goods, dispense the order and check it).   

OUR PATIENT PARTICIPATION GROUP (PPG)

SO, WHAT’S A PPG?

PPG stands for Patient Participation Group. Each GP practice in England should have a PPG. At our surgery, we have a group that meets 4 - 6 times a year at the surgery and discusses some topics virtually. 

What does our PPG do? The job of our PPG is to represent the views and interests of our patients and the local community. All PPGs are different but the things we do include:

• Helping to produce GP practice information leaflets

• Carrying out patient surveys to find out what patients think about certain services

• Feeding back ideas and concerns to help shape services and improve patient experiences

• Help to organise health promotion events

Why is this important?

PPGs enable patients to get involved with our GP practice and help to improve and shape local services. The group is made up of patients registered at the practice, and members of staff usually attend meetings. This means we can work together to make sure patients are put first and can influence any decisions that are made about healthcare and services.

How to get involved

Anyone can join the PPG here at Poundbury Doctors Surgery - you can email the group’s Chair at ppg.poundbury@nhs.net or ask at reception to find out more!
