As a surgery we are always looking to provide patients with the best possible service and care. In order to do this we need patient feedback as your opinions and comments are valuable to us. The practice will be setting up a virtual Patient Participation Group. The virtual group will be made up of patients from the practice and will recieve information by email including the latest results from the National GP Survey asking for your ideas on any improvements, new services within the community and other interesting issues such as new services for patients and patient survey to gain feedback from the group.
If you are interested in joining the virtual Patient Group or wold like more information please ask to speak to Debra the Practice Manager.
Please note the virtual Patient group is not for personal issues, if you need to discuss any issues with the practice please contact the Practice Manager Debra Pryce.
