About our Patient Participation Group [PPG]

The surgery has a Patient Participation Group which is a group of patients who meet bi-monthly to discuss matters relating to the service we provide to patients and suggestions on how we can improve the way we perform.

If you would like to join the PPG or would like more information about their role in the practice please speak to Kay (Practice Manager) or put your request in writing. We are always happy to welcome new members to the group.

Also if you wish to put forward any comments or queries about the surgery you can send them in writing addressed to the PPG, hand them into reception and your comments will be opened and discussed at the next meeting.

PPG Report - Year end 2017

Book sales have continued to raise funds and sufficient has been made available to enable the purchase of a defibrillator for the practice. 

The group as requested he the practice to select more useful equipment for purchase when funds permit so please keep bringing and buying books. The group continue to promote relevant topics on the notice board in the waiting room with display information containing very useful and constructive information. Topics during 2017 included the effects on the practice of missed appointments and also the availability of the flu jabs. The current topic is alcohol. Further topics will be highlighted in 2017 so watch the board.

The group have met with the council public health services which are based in Coalville Library. The department affects a wide range of services and the PPG are investigating ways of promoting these through displays on the surgery waiting room TV screen. This will be an ongoing project we will report progress during 2018.

The group also attend and receive reports from the N.A.PP meetings held in Leicester and discuss any topics which are felt beneficial to our practice and ways we can help promote them.

Thank you for all your support 

The PPG.
