Patient Participation Group (PPG)

Our PPG works to improve communication between the surgery and its patients, to ensure the services we offer meet the needs of all our patients. We are always looking for enthusiastic people to join the group, share ideas on how services could be changed or improved and be involved in making those changes for the good of the patients and the surgery. If you are interested in getting involved or would just like to find out more, please contact our Practice Manager.
