Patient Participation Group AGM
Tuesday 18th September 2018 at 11am
Any PPG member wishing to stand for election to the committee is very welcome to attend the committee meeting (as an observer) to be held prior to the AGM. This will take place at 10.00am on Tuesday 18th September at New Road Surgery. Tea and coffee will be served from 9.30 am so do come along if you are interested in joining the committee so that you can meet existing members of the committee and ask any questions about what this might involve.
New Road Surgery have a very active Patient Participation Group. The committee meet bi-monthly and support the practice in a variety of ways.
Each year the committee undertake a Patient Survey to canvas the views of patients to help inform the practice of any issues or concerns.
Last year the committee helped the practice staff to run the annual flu vaccination Saturday and were greatly appreciated.
The PPG produce a Newsletter to help inform patients of current issues that may be of interest: NRSPPG_Newsletter_March_20018.pdf
Twice yearly the PPG organise outside speakers to give talks for patients on topical health related matters. In March 2018 Dr Challiner came to give a very interesting talk on Women's Health Issues and was attended by over 40 patients. In Spring 2019 they are hoping to arrange a similar talk for men.
Here is a copy of the slide presentation from the Women's Health Talk: PPG Women's Health Talk.pdf
On Friday 15/6/18 the PPG are arranging a QUIZ NIGHT for patients and staff alike to raise funds to support speakers for future talks.
