Participation Group

Patient Participation Group

Our Patient Participation Group (PPG) was set up in December 2011 to enable our patients to help facilitate the shaping and developing of services both in the practice and the community we serve.

The original presentation documents shown to patients can be downloaded by clicking here and help to explain exactly what our group does.

If you would like to email the group with any constructive suggestions, comments and/or feedback – be it positive or negative – then you can email them, in confidence (the practice does not have access to this email account) at: [email protected] You can also enquire about how to become a member of the group and as to what this will entail, if you are interested in becoming involved.

Who Is Involved In The Group?

The group currently has 8 members who are all patients registered at the practice and who reside in the local area.

The group is chaired by Miss Caroline Mitchell, who is supported by Ms Anne Wallace, the group’s secretary and whom is responsible for organising the meetings and distributing various documentation. More information about Caroline and Anne is available by clicking our ‘Members Profile’ tab at the top of the page.

When & How Often Does The Group Meet?

The group has previously been meeting once per quarter at the practice, but we are currently looking to increase the frequency of these meetings as the group and its activities continue to grow and prosper. Each meeting is scheduled for the 3rd Thursday 20th of the month, 7.00 p.m. at the Surgery – please message either the PPG email account ([email protected]) or the surgery email account ([email protected]) if you are interested in attending.

How Do I Get Involved?

If you are interested in joining the group then please message either the PPG email account ([email protected]) or the surgery email account ([email protected]) for more information, or you can pass on your details at reception and we will ensure these are forwarded to Caroline and/or Anne.

Patient Surveys & Reports

The Patient Participation Group compile an annual patient survey every April. This helps us to identify what we are doing well and any areas in which we might make improvements. A copy of the questionnaire will be sent out with the April newsletter.

A summary of results will follow and can be found on your patient participation notice board. They shall also be published in the autumn newsletter.
