The categories of the PPG’s activities include:

  • Looking after the community by drawing attention to strengths and weaknesses in the provision of health care in our local area.
  • Look after patients by arranging talks on health matters of interest to all sections of the community.
  • Look after the Practice by providing feedback to, and interchange views with, the medical and non-medical staff attached to the surgery.
  • Clarify, where possible, the mixed messages issued by the media on the changing to NHS provision and general health care in the local area.


As this is a virtual group, a majority of interaction will be via one of the following channels:

  • Email
  • Facebook
  • Mobile SMS Text
  • Telephone
  • Post

However, if there is sufficient interest, it is muted that once or twice per year that an actual meeting is held where talks of interest could be arranged.
