Patient Participation Group

Registered Charity No 1137071

We are a group of volunteers representing the patients’ viewpoint through liaison with the Health Practitioners and providing support to Partners and Staff at College Surgery. All Patients and staff  are automatically members of the Group and those who register an interest by putting their contact details on the form below will receive, by email, regular newsletters, notices of talks on health matters, fund raising events, notification of the “Topic of the Month” and other matters of interest. 

Key objectives for the Group:

  • Supporting Doctors and Staff to deliver effective health care
  • Providing talks, contacts and activities to assist patient care
  • Assisting in the provision of equipment and facilities not normally provided by the NHS

The Patients’ Group can provide you with a voice that is sought after and listened to, not only by the Doctors and Health Professionals at College Surgery but also by those responsible for health care generally in our region.

As a group we would welcome your participation and opinions, please consider becoming a member. You can register your interest below via the Contact Us link and would be welcome to join us at one of our regular practice meetings to have your say.
