PPG newsletter

Our PPG are a very active group of elected members.  They meet regularly in the practice and are happy to deal with issues on your behalf.  Although, please remember they are unable to deal with your medical history, medication or personal problems.


During the past years the patient group have been very active in raising funds for equipment.  For example the ECG machine.  Previously patients were asked to book at the hospital where the wait time was quite considerable.  We aim to have every ECG completed from request to completion within two weeks.  The 24 hour blood pressure machines were purchased to provide a quick turn around for patients to establish a treatment regime quickly.  There are many pieces of equipment around the surgery.  Look for the pink sticker to know our Patient Group, albeit volunteers, have donated time and effort to support the doctors purchase equipment they would otherwise not be able to afford.


You can now check-in yourself on the new Self Check-In machine purchased by the PPG.


Education evenings are held approximately quarterly.  The PPG are always happy to take e-mail addresses to let you know when the next evening will be held and the topic.  Check the in-house notice board for details.


There is a picture board in the main waiting area showing all the elected members of the group.
