Highcroft Patient Participation Group
Who are we?
We are a group of volunteers who are patients or carers of patients at Highcroft Surgery.
The NHS says that:
At Highcroft, we have a constitution and a code of conduct to make sure that we work openly and fairly for the benefit of all patients. We publish these documents on the PPG section of Highcroft’s website and on our noticeboard in the surgery.
What do we do?
We meet about once a month with a representative of Highcroft Surgery to:
Would you be able to help?
PPG members attend meetings regularly. We have a Code of Conduct for these meetings to ensure that everyone behaves respectfully to each other and listens to their ideas.
We also have some informal meetings to do specific tasks. We do not minute these meetings.
You could be part of our ‘Virtual Group’
You can join our ‘Virtual Group if you are interested in taking part but not able to attend our regular meetings. We will then send you all group emails and you can comment on them or offer ideas by emailing the Chair.
This seems to work well and means that we listen to a wider group of patients.
If you would like to join either group, please leave your name and email address at Reception and the Chair will get in touch with you.
