Patient Participation Group
New Road Surgery Patient Participation Group exists alongside the New Road Surgery to assist in three areas: To work with the Practice Management Team to raise concerns or improve services to patients, to arranging twice-yearly educational events to inform patients about preventive medicine and raising funds to carry out these activities. The group hold an A.G.M. each September, this year's meeting was held as a 'virtually'!
The committee meets bi-monthly and, if you would like to be involved, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Forthcoming Educational Events:
Regrettably a talk on "Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia Awareness" had to be postponed during 2020 due to the Coronavirus, but we will aim to arrange further talks as soon as we are able. Recent educational talks have covered subjects such as "Healthy Eating", "Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease", "Prostate Awareness", "Tackling Loneliness" and "Women's Health". The talks are advertised by posters in the waiting room, by email through the Patient Participation Group's own database and via the practice's text messaging service. The talks are open to all patients registered at New Road Surgery but due to a limit on numbers admission is by ticket only, obtainable from the Surgery's Reception Desk.
Following the successful Fun Quiz Night in 2019 the planned quiz for 2020 unfortunately had to be cancelled but we are aiming to arrange another quiz with the same Quiz Master and Scorer but in a larger venue to accommodate more teams of six players. The date is to be confirmed in 2021 and will be advertised on the NRSPPG Noticeboard and via the NRSPPG database. (Another reason for emailing email@example.com with your email address.)
What We Need:
In order to keep you informed of our activities we need to have your email address placed on the NRSPPG's database. To do this, please email the Membership Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org or complete one of the slips available from the NRSPPG Noticeboard. Unfortunately, because of the G.D.P.R. regulations any contact details the surgery hold are not allowed to be shared with the NRSPPG. Therefore we can keep in touch with you if you have provided us with your contact details. Please note: these will only be used for contacting you in connection with NRSPPG matters and will be given to no-one else.
A Newsletter is published twice a year. To date we have approximately three hundred and sixty email addresses but would like to increase this considerably so that we can send you a copy of our very informative six-monthly Newsletter and contact you about functions such as the health-related talks and the occasional fund-raising and social events we may organise.
