Patient group

We have an active patient participation group at our practice.

In practice, PPGs can play a number of roles, including:

  • Advising the practice on the patient perspective
  • Organising health promotion events
  • Communicating with the wider patient body
  • Running volunteer services and support groups to meet local needs
  • Carrying out research into the views of those who use the practice (and their carers)
  • Influencing the practice or the wider NHS to improve commissioning
  • Fundraising to improve the services provided by the practice

Wells Road Surgery has had a Patient Participation Group (PPG) for several years, but it has been felt that the format of the PPG has not been conducive to adequate patient interaction.

We are currently in the process of reformatting the PPG to make it more interactive and will be keen for any feedback regarding the new PPG once we announce the roll out. Please check Announcements in the near future.

Those in the current PPG will be contacted about joining the new PPG.

If you are happy for us to contact you occasionally by email please fill in the sign-up form and complete all the fields.
