As a way for patients to help us to deliver the kind of service that is needed locally, we have a patient participation group. This comprises of a number of patients interested in being involved in the introduction of new services and implementing change of existing services.
The group is a voluntary independent body, completely separate from the practice and meets a number of times during the year to discuss new services, patient surveys etc and their comments and views are welcome.
Please contact the surgery for more information or to join.
