Purton Surgery developed a Patient Participation Group last year in order to promote communication between patients and the Surgery. This group works with the practice to offer the patients perspective on the services that are provided. They also encourage patients to take more responsibility for their health and provide practical support. Purton Patient Participation Group or "G4P" (group for patients as the group have named themselves) has developed a newsletter which is available via the G4P Newsletter tab.
The Group also helps to encourage patients to take more responsibilty for their health. There is a notice board in the waiting room at the Surgery for the group and they now have an e-mail address. Also you can follow the group on Facebook and Twitter, click on the links below:
If anyone wishes to leave messages or information for the group you can do so by click on the Contact us tab, emailling firstname.lastname@example.org or by dropping/posting the information to Kai at Purton Surgery.
Why a Patient Participation Group would benefit Purton Surgery
Patients will have a better understanding and knowledge of the pratice and the staff. Who is responsible for what and who actually works behind the scenes.
Patients will benefit from improved communications with staff - possible implementation of practice newsletter in the future.
Patients will have a forum to suggest positive ideas and voice concerns.
Patients will be more responsible for their own health.
Services for the Surgery will be planned jointly in order to increase their effectiveness.
Targets and objectives will be met jointly with the patients help.
Patients will have an organisation through which they can identify their own needs.
Patient will be able to get an idea of what is needed to improve healthcare, and make sure that the patient view is always represented.

We would like to know how we can improve our service to you and how you perceive our surgery and staff.
To help us with this, we are setting up a virtual patient representation group so that you can have your say. We will ask the members of this representative group some questions from time to time, such as what you think about our opening times or the quality of the care or service you received. We will contact you via email and keep our surveys succinct so it shouldn’t take too much of your time.
We aim to gather around a hundred patients from as broad a spectrum as possible to get a truly representative sample. We need young people, workers, retirees, people with long term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups.
If you are happy for us to contact you occasionally by email please click the link below to open the sign-up form and complete all the fields.
