Are you interested in finding out more about your GP Practice?
Would you like to influence the development of local health services?
Gudge Heath Lane Surgery has an established Patient Participation Group (PPG) and is looking for new members to join.
This group consists of 11 patients who meet on a quarterly basis. For more information regarding the group please contact the Practice Manager. The aims and objectives of the group are:
- To give practice staff and patients the opportunity to discuss topics of mutual interest
- To allow patients to make positive suggestions about the practice and their healthcare.
- To act as a representative group that can be called upon to influence the local provision of health and social care.
- To allow open and honest communication between the practice and patient representatives.
- We now also have a 'Virtual' Patient Participation Group who receive information and take part in surveys regarding services at the surgery via the internet. If you would like to join please ask for an application form at reception or click here.
The PPG provides:
- A critical friend: A two way transfer of information and ideas
- Early highlighting of service development within the Practice
- Patient feedback about what service is provided
- Patients ideas on what they might like the practice to provide
- The PPG does NOT provide any medical advice
Discussion topics at the next meeting could include:
- An update on any planned changes at the Practice
- Ideas for development of the group – what would you like to see your Patient Participation Group doing?
- Assisting the Practice in Practice promotions eg Flu clinics, patient surveys
