Patient Participation Group

Our Patient Participation Group is a group of patients of the practice who act as a link between the practice and you, the patient. Its aim is to help us to provide a better service to meet your needs. The Group meets regularly and also holds a number of social events throughout the year. New members are very welcome.

If you are interested in further information or wish to join the Support Group, please contact any member of the reception team, here at the surgery. You will then be contacted by the Chairman,  Roger Briers.
