Patient Participation Group
Are you interested in finding out how your GP practice works and about the health services it delivers? Why not join our Patient Participation Group?
Preston Road Surgery have an active Patient Participation Group, who play a part in shaping roles and services within the surgery. We are always seeking new members to have a say in what we do. If you would like to join our PPG group, please contact the surgery via email, or complete a sign up form and return this to the surgery.
PPG Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The PPG has the following aim as decided by its members:
‘To work closely with the surgery team, representing the views of patients, to develop the workings of the surgery and improve the health of the community’.
- Promote the proactive engagement of patients
- Seek views from patients and act on their views
- Involve patients in decisions about the range and quality of services provided
- Involve patients in decisions that lead to changes to the services the practice provides
Assist in gathering views from the wider patient population through the use of local practice surveys
This group helps us identify areas where we can improve or change, help us set goals and produce positive results. We would like to be able to find out the opinions of as many patients as possible, whether from meetings or an electronic forum.
We will keep you updated on surgery news and forward surgery newsletters. We will meet 3-4 times a year. We believe that by working together, this will help ensure the delivery of a modern, high quality general practice.
Weymouth & Portland Patient Questionnaire Report
The PPG joined the locality PPGs last year and produced a Patient Questionnaire, designed with the CCG to help understand patient experiences of GP services since the start of COVID 19 and the impact on patient’s to the way they communicate with their GP.
The questionnaire was sent out in November and December 2020 and just under 2000 responses were received.
A communications working group
was set up which involved a PPG Member and staff member from each practice to
analyse the report findings.
