Patient Participation Group

We would like to invite you to join our Patient Participation Group to give your views on our practice and how we can improve our services for our patients.

The Patient Participation Group meets regularly and opinions and suggestions are freely exchanged at these meetings. We use the group to disseminate information to our patients and we hope that you will feed back to us your ideas via the group.

You are also invited to join the Virtual Patient Group the details of which can be found below. Your comments and ideas will be passed to the group members, to be raised at the next patient group meeting. We would like to have representation from all age groups including our younger patients, so if you would like to join us please submit your contact details below to express an interest.

The surgery has an active patient representative group who meet bi-monthly on a Thursday morning. The group supports the practice by actively participating and promoting new initiatives and developments whilst representing the views, wishes and opinions of the patient population.

The group is currently chaired by Albert George. If you would like to join the group as a representative please contact the practice by letter, email or by using the form below.

Virtual Patient Group

We are aware that a lot of our patients cannot spare the time or have commitments that make it impossible for them to join us.

Our patients’ views are important to us, so we are setting up a “virtual patient group”. By joining the virtual patient group you are agreeing to share your email address with us and this will be added to our computer system but not shared outside the NHS organisation. We will update you on surgery news and involve you in decisions we make about the surgery or its services.

The health service is currently undergoing massive restructuring and there will be some difficult and important choices to make with limited resources so your views are important. If you can spare a few minutes why not think about joining our virtual group? Comments suggestions and feedback all welcome.

Non-urgent advice: Please send your comments, suggestions or feedback by:
