Newsletters & Patient Participation Group
The Aims of the Patient Participation Group
Torkard Hill Medical Centre has a very active Patient Participation Group (PPG) which is chaired by Kathryn Sanderson supported by Dr Alex Brodie. We encourage our patients to give their views about new developments in the Practice and our wider community. We think it is important to access views and opinions from as many patients as possible and we strongly encourage our patients to join our PPG.
We have consulted with our patients and our feedback suggests that many of our patients are busy and may not have time to come to the surgery for face to face meetings. Therefore, we have created an active ‘virtual’ group of our patients. This mechanism allows patients to easily exchange views, participate in practice surveys and with whom we can consult from time to time by email.
