Patient Participation Group
We are proud to be a member of N.A.P.P (National Association for Patient Participation). We hope that this will enable us to strengthen our relationship with our patients through our Patient Participation Group (PPG).
We work very closely with our PPG to strive for the best in service and care for our patients and this is summed up by the following comments from our chair:
As chair of Parkfield's Patient Participation Group (PPG) I have been very pleased with the way we have built a good relationship with the staff at the practice. We have worked with them on developing patient questionnaires and have been in the waiting room talking to patients helping them to complete the questionnaires and listening to their comments and suggestions. When the results are known they are published on the surgery's web site and we have all discussed any suggestions made. The practice has always responded very quickly and where appropriate has made changes and improvements to it's service as a result. Members of the PPG have been involved in staff training and we are supporting them in preparing for their inspection with the Care Quality Commission. They always strive to reach a very high standard of care and are very willing to discuss any concerns that patients may have.
Please let Sue Knott Practice Manager know if you would like to be part of this group and helping to shape the future of your practice.
