Experience shows that successful practices and effective PPGs go hand in hand. Every PPG is unique, evolving to meet local needs. Here at the Medical Centre, we have developed our own PPG aims. These are to:
To take these aims forward we need patients to join our PPG – you will need to be able to attend a number of meetings and be prepared to get actively involved in projects that make a real difference to the patient services provided by the practice. Please contact the Practice Manager – Nia George at the practice if you would like to be involved in our patient participation group.

We would like to know how we can improve our service to you and how you perceive our surgery and staff.
To help us with this, we are setting up a virtual patient representation group so that you can have your say. We will ask the members of this representative group some questions from time to time, such as what you think about our opening times or the quality of the care or service you received. We will contact you via email and keep our surveys succinct so it shouldn’t take too much of your time.
We aim to gather around a hundred patients from as broad a spectrum as possible to get a truly representative sample. We need young people, workers, retirees, people with long term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups.
If you are happy for us to contact you occasionally by email please click the link below to open the sign-up form and complete all the fields.
