Heathbridge Patient Participation Group
 

Heathbridge Patient Participation Group

Do you want a voice in how your Surgery is run? Then the PPG is the best way to make yourself heard.

The aim of the PPG is to:-

  • To develop a partnership and communication channel between patients and the Practice.
  • To be consulted about proposed changes at the Practice and to make proposals and suggestions for improvements in services.
  • To provide a forum in which patients' feelings and ideas on the Practice and wider NHS issues can be expressed.

The Heathbridge PPG currently has about 25 members. You can either attend our regular meetings or participate by email. Meetings are held at least every quarter.

Dates of meetings are shown on the Practice website and on the posters in the Practice. Minutes of the latest meetings are also on the website.

The group is open to anyone registered with the practice. It has been running for over 8 years and, thanks to its efforts, a number of improvements have been made.

It is important that the group reflects the views of the full patient community, and members are constantly seeking ways to publicise their activities and to recruit new members, whether old or young, working or retired, new to the surgery or long-established. Particularly if you have strong feelings on any aspect of the Practice, do get in touch with us.

For more information on the Patient Group or to join, please email: joinppg@gmail.com or fill in an application form which can be found in Reception.
