Patient Participation Group



Getting Your View

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 have set up a patient representation group. Members of the representative group meet with practice staff every three months to discuss ways of developing and improving the services we offer to you. If you are interested in joining the group please complete the sign-up form below. We are particularly keen to hear from parents of young children.
