Patient Participation Group
If you would like to be involved with the surgery and are interested in joining a small patient group to work alongside the practice. We would be interested to hear from you and any ideas that you may have.
Please contact the practice who will inform you how you can become a member.
Below is a statement from one of our current members of the patient group.
Patient Participation Group (PPG) – New Members Needed
I joined the PPG some 6 month ago, and have attended three group sessions and have found them most interesting. Discussions are most definitely not one sided, we are encouraged to express our point of view, and I found quite surprisingly intently listened to and some are taken on board.
We are given details of proposed upcoming practice changes and we are asked to comment on them. If I may loosely sum up our involvement, we are:
A platform to develop a patient partnership with the practice
Establish what patients think about the practice services and establish priorities and modify them from a patient’s perspective.
We are a platform to test and modify the practice ideas and plans.
In my opinion the PPG is a positive process but requires enthusiasm in order to achieve all the potential benefits for both the practice and patients.
I would encourage patients to think about becoming a member of the PPG, you will be made most welcome. We meet for one hour (approx.) every two months and there is no compulsion to attend – Give it a Try!
