Patient Survey - April 2018
Patient Participation Group (PPG)
We have an active PPG who plan to meet once a month. 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:
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.
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

Patient Participation Group March 2016.
The PPG currently has four active committee members. In the past year, we have worked with the practice on the new initiatives that were part of the Prime Minister's Challenge Fund. These included providing evening and weekend appointments, piloting group consultations, and setting up a diabetes self-help group.
Our priorities for 2016/17 are as follows:
1. The practice is going to collect email addresses for patients. These will be held securely by the practice but will allow the PPG to communicate with a far larger number of patients who are likely to be more representative of the practice population.
2. Continue to help the practice to gather feedback from patients, including handing out surveys in the waiting room, and analysing the anonymised feedback that is received.
3. Advising the practice on the patient perspective, and helping to address teething problems when any changes are made or new staff join the practice.
4. Suggesting ways in which access to the practice can be improved and helping the practice in finding the best ways to meet the needs of its patients.
