Patient Participation Group



Your views and concerns can be heard through Patient Voice, which is the voice of your PPG (Patient Practice Group). The PPG has just been reformed by six patients of the practice and three practice staff. Its aim is to give all the patients a voice in the practice.   Your committee consists of the Chair Neil Turner, Secretary (to be appointed), and representing the practice is lead doctor Dr Mike Pimm, Practice Manager Carol Jones and Livi Tratt Deputy Practice Manager.


We really would welcome some more patients onto the committee to ensure a cross section of patient needs. If you would be willing to be a member for a year or longer if you wish, please contact the practice and complete a form or ask to speak to Livi Tratt. Your commitment would be four committee meetings per annum and an odd one or two should the need arise.


Meetings for 2020 are currently on hold, however are still welcoming new members to ask questions virtually. 


Alternatively, the committee would welcome patients that would like to be involved in other PPG activities such as manning the PPG desk once a week or help in fund raising for such things as a community defibrillator.


The PPG desk is going to be in the waiting room. It will present various literatures from how to stop smoking to when flu inoculation will start. At least once a week it will be manned by a PPG member who will assist in sourcing health information, when events are happening, dates of flu inoculations etc. We would very much welcome your concerns to the PPG desk practice representative.


Your committee and I look forward to representing you in the foreseeable future. Please make sure your concerns are made known, and those that can, please get involved in order to make a vibrant practice where patient needs are at the forefront.


Thank you for reading this short introduction to the PPG.


Neil Turner your Chair person.
