An open letter to all our patients from the PPG
The most important thing about our group is that it is YOUR Patient Participation Group (PPG). The current Group was formed in 2011 with a few changes of members and has an active core membership.
Among its main roles is that of representing the views, interests and concerns of patients. It is a means of giving you, as a patient, a real voice in how the practice delivers services to patients as a whole.
Here is a link to a PPG video explaining the role of a PPG
There is huge potential to get involved and it needs only involve a little of anyone’s time. The Group meets every other month for an hour at the Surgery normally on a Thursday and meetings generally do not last more than an hour despite having a full agenda.
We understand that everyone has far too many commitments these days but this is a route down which you can invest a little and see huge gains for the 14,037 patients at the Panton Practice.
If you would like to know a little more about the Group then ask at Reception for them to put me in touch with you or vice versa. We also need members for the ‘Virtual Group’ which means you will need to have internet access. You can also find our PPG link on the Practice website.
Best wishes from the Group who hope to meet you soon.
Jenny Furber (Chair)

Moving Forward with our Patient Participation Group
We are pleased to report the publication of our annual Patient Participation Group Report and Action Plan following the guidance provided by the Department of Health. Some progress has been made on the areas outlined for development and this will continue over the coming months.
In addition our Patient Group Executive is supporting a number of Practice initiatives developed both on a local need basis and in line with the action plan. One of these is to begin fundraising for medical equipment for the benefit of all patients. Please look out for events on this site or in the Waiting Rooms and support us if you feel able.
