The surgery formed a Patient Participation Group in September 2011 which it anticipates will bring a sense of partnership between the Practice and its patients. A good interface is essential in identifying areas for improvement and it is hoped that forming the group will aid communication. The Group will be tasked with collecting patient opinions and experiences in the form of a survey. This will help the Practice evaluate its services and the results will be published in the first quarter of the New Year.
All registered patients are welcome to contribute to the Patient Participation Group but in the interest of effective decision-making membership of the Committee has been limited. Initially six patients, who are representative of the Practice population, have been approached and they will be joined by Dr Paul Cook and Mrs Dawn Jonathan, Practice Manager. The Group will meet about four times a year.
You will see that the Committee members can be viewed on the next tab in this section of the website, meeting dates, agendas and minutes are filed in the third section and the last section gives patients the facility to send constructive feedback or suggestions to the Surgery.
