Patient Participation Group

Are YOU interested in finding out more about the Practice?

Would YOU like to influence the development of local health services?

If so we want to hear from YOU !!

WHAT IS THE ROLE OF THE PATIENT PARTICIPATION GROUP?

At its simplest, patient participation refers to patients who wish to take a more active interest in developing local healthcare services. The idea is for patients and staff to work together to share ideas to help patients to take more responsibility for their own health and to help improve the services offered at the Practice. The PPG will seek to improve communications through the practice website as well as through notice boards, email and text.  We will hold some drop-in meetings.  However we know many people are busy.  If you want to be involved and would prefer not to attend meetings, we can email you.

We will ask the members of this representative group some questions from time to time about our services, such as what you think about our opening times or the quality of the care or service you received. We will contact you via email and keep our surveys short so it should only take a few minutes of your time.

WHAT ELSE CAN A PPG DO?

  • Help us to communicate to patients how recent changes to NHS will affect services provided
  • Let the practice staff know more about the level and standard of service they provide from a patient perspective
  • Help the practice decide on overall service priorities
  • Help improve the experience of patients attending the Surgery
  •  SO IT’S BACK TO YOU….
  • The PPGs will only work well if patients communicate with us. We already have ideas but need your input!
