Patient Participation Group

 

Are you aware we have a PPG?

 

We are a group of interested patients which works with the practice to help look at issues from a patient perspective.

 

“Active Group” Members

 

At present, there is a small group that meets at the practice, (for an hour and a half) every 6 weeks.

 

We would like to start a “Virtual Group” too.

 

This would be for people who cannot attend the practice meetings but who would still like to make a contribution.

 

We would contact you by email and ask you to review proposals, complete short surveys or give us feedback on specific topics.

If you would like to join either group, please let us know; we are very keen to get more members.
