The new Patient Participation Group (PPG) was formed early last year and meets approximately every 6 weeks at the Medical Practice.
The PPG provides the Doctors and Practice Staff with patient feedback about the service and care the Surgery provides.
One of the groups aims is to build bridges between the Practice and its patients.
It is the PPG’s desire to improve the patients experience in any way possible, from contact on the phone, premises, facilities and services offered by the Watton Medical Practice.
In October last year the PPG ran its first event in partnership with the Practice. This was a Saturday morning walk-in flu vaccination clinic. This was a great success with nearly 100 patients attending. The PPG is hoping to organise further clinics this year and would welcome any suggestions from patients.
The PPG tries to represent all demographic patient groups within the community. With this in mind they would like to hear from younger patients and those from some of the ethnic groups in the town who would be interested in becoming members of the PPG.
If you are interest in becoming a PPG member, or have suggestions for future patient clinics, please contact the PPG Chairman, Mr Tom Thurston, by letter to the surgery or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org). We look forward to hearing from you.
