Here at the Surgery we have a Patient Participation Group. Recently the group has been remote, but as things start to settle we hope to resume face to face meetings. We would like more patients to be involved to help shape both the services which we offer locally, and understand the “bigger picture” in the NHS. To be fully representative of our patient list we would particularly welcome all ages from teenagers to those in the 100's. We also welcome people from different ethnic backgrounds.
We appreciate that everyone has busy lives and other commitments and cannot always give time to attend meetings. For those patients there will be an opportunity to take part in short surveys via email or via our website feeding back their views and comments. We also welcome email or telephone calls giving us your ideas or comments on our services.
If you are genuinely interested in the future of the NHS and services provided locally please email or telephone:
