We have two groups which patients can join to help improve our services:
We have for many years had a well established and valued Patient Group who meet regularly with the Practice. The group discuss items of mutual interest to the practice and patients, have formed a Voluntary Drivers Scheme and hold fund-raising events to support the Practice with the purchase of items for the benefit of our patients. If you would like to join this group please ask to speak to the Deputy Practice Manager who will give you more details.
We recognise that not every patient has the time to give this level of commitment, but may still have an interest and opinions on how to keep the practice's services at the highest quality. We have therefore set up a Patient Reference Group on a larger scale.
We would like to know how we can improve our service to you and how you perceive the care you receive from our surgery and staff.
To help us with this we have set up a patient reference group so that you can have your say. We ask the members of this representative group some questions from time to time, such as what you think about our opening times or the quality of the care or service you received. We contact group members via post or email and keep our surveys succinct so it shouldn’t take too much of your time.
We're grateful for the more than two hundred patients who have already signed up to the group. We have a great mix of young people, workers and retirees, people with long term conditions and people from different ethnic groups forming a truly representative sample of our patient population.
We're always happy to have more members, so if you are happy for us to contact you occasionally by post or email (probably between two and four times each year) please click the link below to open the sign-up form and complete all the fields.

If you prefer, you can download the sign up form as a pdf document, print it out, complete it and return it to the practice.

We will be in touch shortly after we receive your form. Please note that no medical information or other questions will be responded to by this route.
Many thanks for considering helping us to keep improving our service to you.
