Both Practices run a Patient Participation Group (PPG) which is a group that is representative of the patients registered at the surgery.
Next Patient Meeting:
The purpose of the PPG is to feed back its views and agree with the practice any priority areas for change. The practices will be seeking views from registered patients through the use of local practice surveys and with the help of our PPG we hope to establish the opinions of our patients on services provided by the practice and local NHS. It is our intention to develop a virtual PPG; an email community with which we will engage regularly.
The PPG can potentially influence decisions on service development and provision.
Anyone who is a registered patient at either Practice can apply to join the PPG. However the Practice does have a right to refuse an individual if it considers it is in the best interest of the individual or the Practice.
