We established a Patient Participation Group in 2011. The group provides an excellent opportunity for patients to get involved with what is happening in our surgery.
What is a Patient Participation Group?
We are a small group of patients and practice staff who meet every 3 months or so to discuss ways of making a positive contribution to improving services and facilities offered by Woodley Centre Surgery to its patients and the local community.
Purpose of the Woodley Centre Surgery Partnership Patient Participation Group
The Woodley Centre Surgery Patient Participation Group (PPG) represents the views of patients to the surgery's doctors and their colleagues. They will:
The PPG will appoint a chair from amongst the patient representatives. There is no fixed term of office, but the appointment should be reviewed at least every three years.
There is no fixed term of office for patient representatives, but representatives are free to step down at any time. The mix of representatives should, if possible, reflect the diversity of patients.
The PPG will meet four times a year. Patient representatives may hold additional meetings.
Please join our Patient Sounding Board!
If you would be happy to complete occasional surveys created by the PPG and/or the surgery on your experience of the health care we provide please complete the 'contact us' page above. We have already recruited over 1,500 patients to provide a representative cross- section of views to give us better insight into patients' concerns.
