Patient Participation Group

The Patient Participation Group are a group of patients who have expressed an interest in knowing how the surgery operates and wish to make an input. All patients are eligible to become a member and attend meetings.

Patient Participation Group meetings are held every twelve weeks at the surgery, usually on a Friday commencing at 12.00 pm. To provide professional advice a Practice GP and the Practice Manager are in attendance.
