Patient Participation Group

Patients have a key role to play as partners in both supporting the development of general practice and in ensuring the sustainability of the NHS as a whole.


We would like our patients to become involved in the decisions we make about the range, shape and quality of the services we provide.


We are looking for members to join the group whatever age, sex or ethnicity and no experience is necessary!


If you would like to join please contact the Practice Manager, Miss Emma Hallett on 01308 861800 or email emma.hallett@gp-j81076.nhs.uk 



We are holding our next meeting on:


Wednesday 7th November, Pound Piece at 7:30pm

Do you understand the 'commissioning' process and how GPs engage with it?  No?  Then click here to see a YouTube video by the Kings Fund, which attempts to explain how the NHS commissions.  It is an excellent video, which shows very clearly how 'complex' commissioning is!


The PPG has agreed 3 priority areas to work on with the Practice:


1: Improving Access to medication for housebound and isolated patients by working together to provide a volunteer delivery service.  This has the added benefit of regular contact with these vulnerable patients.


2: Improved access to our services for parents with yound children and for our younger patients by developing 'open access' clinics for these groups of patients.


3: Improve communication and provide health education to our patients by raising funds to hold educational events and buying extra equipment for patients to use.  And the PPG will be working with the practice to develop a series of leaflets along the lines of 'what happens next' for example when you have been in to have a blood test.
