Membership of Patient Group
In theory every registered young person and adult is a member of the Practice’s Patient Group as anyone should feel as though they can comment on the way the Practice currently operates and on changes in the way the Practice provides services in the future.
Over the last year the Practice has continued to expand the membership of a wider ‘virtual group’ of patients who are welcome to attend 6-monthly patient group meetings but who may prefer to rather than attend a formal meeting, provide feedback by e-mail. Therefore we have asked new adults registering with the Practice, patients with long-term conditions who are attending in for their annual check and patients who have contacted the Practice Manager to make suggestions in order to improve services whether they would like to become a member of the Patient Participation Group.
Our membership has now increased to 113 patients (as at 18/3/2012) and is still growing which is excellent.
