JOIN OUR PATIENT PARTICIPATION GROUP
We would like to know how we can improve our service to you and how you perceive our surgery and staff. To help us with this, we have set up a Patient Participation Group (PPG) who attend meetings and a Virtual PPG for members who are unable to attend and contact is via e-mail so every member can have their say. We aim to gather as many patients from as broad a spectrum as possible to get a truly representative sample. We need young people, workers, retirees, people with long term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups
So if you click on Patient Participation -latest information today & you can become a group member, access the latest surveys & reports, and minutes of the meetings
Friends and Family
From 1st December 2014 it was a contractual requirement that all GP practices undertake the NHS Friends & Family Test (FFT)The FFT is a feedback tool that supports the principal that people who use the NHS services have the oppertunity to provide their feedback on their experience that can be used to improve service. The test just involves two questions with a multiple choice answers and a comment box if you want to leave a response.
As a patient if you could just take a little time to complete the Friends and Family Test it would be very much appreciated. Just decide which site you want to register you views and click and complete.

Nominated GP for all patients
The named GP requirement has been extended for all patients. This is a contractual requirement and builds on the 2014-2015 agreement to provide a named and accountable GP for the over 75s. By the 30th June 2015 the practice will have to allocate a GP to each patient or within 21 days if aged over 75 or over or newly registered with the practice. By the 31st of March 2016 all patients ( excluding patients aged 75 or over and those who have been informed under the 2014-2015 provisions or within 21 days if new to the practice ) will have been notified of their nominated GP, as appropriate
