Patient Participation Group
The Patient Participation Group was established at the Practice in 2007. The purpose of the group is to ensure that the Patients in the Practice receive the best possible GP / Health / Community Care.
There are 20 members made up from patients representing Dinnington, Anston, and Woodsetts, Practice Managers, Nurse Manager and Senior Partner.
The PPG has written Terms of Reference which are regularly reviewed.
Quarterly meetings are held to ensure that patients have a voice on the running and development of the Practice and to discuss current activities and proposed changes. The PPG also helps to set the priorities for the Practice.
The Patient Participation Group communicates to our patients with a regular column in the quarterly newsletter.
The PPG has responsibility for agreeing the issues which have priority to be included in an annual practice report. The PPG reviews Practice feedback from a multitude of sources such as in house survey results, the National Access survey, NHS CHOICES and Friends and Family Test. As a result of this feedback the PPG discusses and agrees three key priority areas for the Practice to implement. The priority areas for the Practice for 2014 / 2015 were:
1. Refurbishment of the Dinnington surgery
2. Access - the introduction of a new Triage appointment system
3. A new phone system
The main points from the report and other PPG news are displayed on the PPG noticeboards at each site.
Details of the Practice Opening Hours and Extended Hours are also published on the PPG page.
