This group is designed to get the opinions of the people that matter….. YOU the patient.

The practice patient participation group has advertised to patients for members by displaying poster in the waiting room, we have also had members of the patient participation group in the waiting areas talking to patients and asking their opinions and if they would like to join the group. The patient participation group have handed out the practice questionnaires to members of the public in the waiting areas and encouraged their views.

We have a wide and diverse number of patients; we actively seek patient’s opinions and encourage them to join the group.
