Patient Participation Group
Patients' Groups (sometimes known as Patient Participation Groups) are being created in many parts of the country, typically working with individual practices such as the Dishley Grange Medical practice. Since mid-2011, a small number of patients were working with doctors and the practice manager to create a fully-fledged Patients' Group which came into being in April 2012. The patient group operate on behalf of the general practice population and are always keen to welcome new members.
The Group's main objectives are:
- Providing the patient perspective in planning and commissioning practice-based services;
- Communicating with patients about their needs and concerns and about the activities of the Patients' Group.
- Giving feedback on patients' needs, concerns and interests and challenging the practice constructively when necessary;
- Liaising with NHS services, the National Association for Patient Participation and other bodies in the interests of patient engagement and influencing the provision of secondary healthcare and social care locally;
- Raising awareness of health related issues in the local community and encouraging participation
