Getting Involved: our Patient Participation Group

The Practice has a Patient Participation Group (PPG) which meets every couple of months to find out the sorts of things that are important to our patients, so that we can improve the services we provide.  Many of the group members are older – so we need some younger people to let us know what is important to your age group.  See more details on our website here.

Here are some links and resources that you may find helpful.  Let us know if there are more that you would like to be added.
