What does the Group do?

We form a communication bridge between the patient population and the surgery staff. Or group fosters collaboration between the two groups, to bring about the best possible outcomes for both.

We keep in touch with members by email or post, circulating information about the practice and developments in the NHS at the regional and national level.

The committee brings in representatives from all parts of our community, enabling us to communicate directly with all of the patient population. We run surveys and discussion forums to inform the commissioning of services by the practice. We run open meetings on medical topics requested by the patients. 

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


How often does the PG meet?

Four or five times a year

Where and when does it meet?

At the Surgery, Huntingdon Road, currently on Wednesday evenings 18.30 - 20.00.

Who decides what we do?

We have a Committee (currently five members), who meet most months to take up members’ issues and plan themes for the full PG meetings. If you'd like to join the Committee please contact us via the website - or drop a note into reception at either surgery, for the attention of Sarah-Jane Jarrold, Operations Manager.

What if I can’t get to meetings?

We’ll keep in touch, usually by email.

What if I don’t have email?

We’ll post information to you

Enquiries sent through the contact form within this section of the website, are dealt with by the Patient Group - these do not get sent to the Practice directly.
