What does the Group do?

Patient group discussions bring staff and patients together, to fine tune local delivery of care, for the benefit of both patients and staff.

Focus groups are run by the staff and address a different medical issue each time.

If you would like to volunteer to help facilitate these meetings, please write to

Volunteers help in very practical ways (greeting patients, taking minutes, making tea.) Volunteers are chosen for each meeting, based on their ability to contribute practical help at that time.

The volunteers do not, themselves, offer their views on care. Our role is to help give a voice to the wider patient population.

If you would like to give feedback on your care at the surgery, please contact reception or write to the Operations Manager at the surgery address.

We are affiliated to the National Association of Patient Participation Groups, which works in close association with the Royal College of General Practitioners.
