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.

Getting Your View

The group would like to contact patients on occasion by email and/or text so that they can obtain the views of the widest group of patients possible. We would like to obtain your email address and mobile phone number to do this. Please complete the Patient Contact Form to provide your consent for this.

We at Torkard would like to thank her for all the hard work and dedication she has shown the PPG all these years and wish her all the best in her future endeavours. It as important as ever that we engage with patients to help identify areas of improvement at the practice, especially during these difficult times. Do you think you have the leadership, attentiveness & drive to become our new PPG chair? Please get in contact with us on james.alder@nhs.net and we will get in contact with you in due course.
