PATIENT PARTICIPATION GROUP

Our PPG was set up a number of years ago and we are always pleased to welcome new members to bring fresh ideas to the group. We continue to work with the Practice to identify and support further improvements in the services provided. The recent patient survey showed that the Practice compared well with other practices in Somerset but we are always looking for ways to improve.

 

The aims of our Patient Participation Group include?

. The PPG has a number of aims which include:

  • assisting the practice to communicate information effectively to patients and help the practice understand the patients’ viewpoint and vice versa
  • promoting good health by supporting health promotion activities and preventative information within the practice
  • providing feedback and interpretation from patients and to challenge the practice constructively when necessary including identifying gaps or problems in services provided
  • contributing to appropriate practice decision making and to be consulted on relevant service development and provision
  • acting as a representative group that can be called upon to influence the local provision of Health and Social Care
  • and to involve a wider group of patients that is representative of the practice population

We have recently produced our first newsletter and if you would like a copy you can access it here or request a copy to be emailed to you.

Virtual Patient Reference Group

Would you like to have your say about the services provided at Park Medical Partnership and Evercreech Surgery but don't have the time to come to our meetings?  Then you may like to join our Virtual Patient Group and help us shape the future.

We are very proud of our surgery and staff and although we try to do a good job we are always looking at ways to improve our service to our patients. So we are setting up an online patient participation group, to work with the existing PPG members,  so that you can make suggestions about the way we deliver services to our patients. We would like a wide range of our patients to take part so that the views are representative of the local population.

We would like to email you from time to time to ask your views and we would like as many patients as possible to take part – just leave us your email address and we will be in contact once or twice a year to ask you for your views and what you think is important.

If you are happy to be part of this group please click here to apply to join online.
