The Patient Participation Group offers a great opportunity to get actively involved in local health issues of concern to you and George Clare Surgery. It gives you the opportunity to find out how NHS changes could affect you, attend meetings where invited speakers will provide information on topics such as the NHS Primary Care Trust, resources for carers, support networks and specific health issues. Help organise and evaluate surveys to find out what patients think about the service they get from the surgery and how it might be improved.
The PPG aims to create a communication link between the practice and its patients providing a forum for constructive discussion in areas such as health promotion and education, improvement of services and other topics determined by the needs of the community. Several local surgeries have already formed PPGs which have brought very real benefits to patients and carers, so please support your group and let us have your ideas or suggestions and contribute to the continuous development of existing healthcare provision.
All patients that are registered with George Clare surgery are entitled to join or be involved with the group, the more diverse the group the more accurate the feedback.
For further information please telephone The Practice Manager on 01354 695888

Did you know that the George Clare Patient Participation Group now has a 'virtual' PPG? So if your busy lifestyle doesn't allow you to attend our open meetings, which are held every three months, you can let us know your views on the services that the surgery commissions/provides by emailing them to email@example.com. We will ensure that your comments are considered by the Group at the next meeting and will post the notes of the meeting on the PPG area of the George Clare wenbsite (www.georgeclaresurgery.nhs.uk).
We unfortunately do not have an active PPG and are looking for new members who are willing to set it up. Please discuss this with reception if you are interested.
