Patient Participation Group (PPG)
We have an active PPG who plan to meet more or less monthly in 2016/17. This group enables patients to voice their opinions on how well we are doing and to identify any areas of our service which we can improve.
We currently have six patient members:
Mrs Cheryl Fleetwood (Chair)
Mr Mohinder Dhaliwal
Mr Lionel Chandler
Mr Mohammed Raza
Mr Keith Mash
Mr Colin Pill
If you would like to participate in our patient participation group please leave your name, telephone number and email address (if you have one) with the receptionist.
Over the coming months, the practice is going to be collecting email addresses for those patients who are happy to share them with us. This will allow us to communicate more effectively with a larger number of people. These addresses will not be shared with the PPG. However, we will occasionally contact our email community with information that the PPG thinks should be shared, or to conduct surveys of your views.
Recruitment of new members of our PPG
We are actively seeking to recruit more members to our PPG. We would like to truly represent our practice population and need more representatives from the following groups:
- patients who are carers
- female patients
- patients with disabilities and
- patients from ethnic minority patients
If you are interested in joining our group please contact Cheryl Fleetwood (Chair) via the surgery reception by leaving your details or via email on firstname.lastname@example.org
Statement of Purpose of for our Patient Participation Group
A group of patients who have volunteered to help the practice by attending regular meetings to have in depth discussions with practice staff to help develop and improves services provided by the practice.
Opinions will be sought from the group on:
- The services we provide.
- Making sure any changes we make are patient focused.
- Setting priorities for the future.
- Helping to agree questions for patient surveys
Minutes of meetings will be posted on the PPG section of the practice website.
The PPG will be conducting the annual PPG Patient survey week commencing 23rd April 2018. Please feel free to attend the surgery during this time to complete a survey. We value your feedback. Please contact Kelly Barrow at the practice if you have any queries about this event.
