Patient Participation Group




Engaging the involvement of our patients is a very helpful process to ensuring our services are shaped to best meet patients' needs.

To help us with this we invite any patient who would like to contribute to the practice to join our informal and friendly Patient Group.

The Patient Group meets with representatives of the practice staff to discuss the development of the practice facilities and services. Meetings are every other month and alternate between online (Zoom) and in-person meetings.

If you would be interested in participating please complete the sign-up form below and you will be sent an email, which enables you to reply to register your interest in our patient-led representative group.

In order to gather a truly representative sample of patients together, we welcome patients from all manner of diverse backgrounds including young people, students, workers, retired people, people with long term conditions, and people from non-British ethnic groups.

If you are interested in joining the patient group, or are happy for us to contact you occasionally by email as part of an on line patient representation group,  please click the link below to open the sign-up form and complete all the fields.

If you are interested in joining our new group please contact us using our secure online form

We will be in touch shortly after we receive your form. Please note that no medical information or questions can be responded to by means of this route of communication with the practice. If you have a concern of a medical nature, please call to make an appointment to talk to a doctor or a nurse
