Patient Participation Group (PPG)
The practice has set up a Patient Participation Group (PPG) to give us feedback on the range and quality of our services and tell us where we can improve. Our aim is to reach a wide range of patients so we get views from across our population.
Please read our Terms of Reference and Ground Rules for the PPG.
One of the roles of the group is to give us feedback through surveys of our patients. We have carried out various surveys since the patient group started and published the results through the Annual Reports. Our latest survey results are detailed below but will be published in our end of year Annual Report in March 2016.
