Patient Participation Group

About Us

Who are we?

The group as the name suggests is made up mainly of patients of the practice with support from medical centre staff.  Our first meeting was held in September 2009.

What do we do?

We have regular, informal meetings to discuss issues affecting both the practice and patients. We now have an agreed set of working objectives.

Our remit is to work with the practice to affect and improve all manner of patient experiences from access to appointments, newsletters, the colour of paint used in the building and so on!  However, our main focus in the coming months is to improve communication. 

How can you join us?

Our meetings are usually one morning every 6 weeks although this is open to change.  We would welcome new members so if you have a particular interest in the practice or a skill you feel will benefit the group, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Meetings start at 10:15am unless otherwise shown and are held in Room 17.

Getting Your View

The group would like to contact patients on occasion by email and/or text so that they can obtain the views of the widest group of patients possible. We would like to obtain your email address and mobile phone number to do this. Please complete the Patient Contact Form to provide your consent for this.
