Join Patient Reference Group
We would like to know how we can improve our service to you and how you perceive our surgery and staff.
To help us with this, we are setting up a virtual patient representation group so that you can have your say. We will ask the members of this representative group some questions from time to time, such as what you think about our opening times or the quality of the care or service you received. We will contact you via email and keep our surveys succinct so it shouldn’t take too much of your time.
We aim to gather around a hundred patients from as broad a spectrum as possible to get a truly representative sample. To join the group you can either complete the online form at the end of this page or click here to download the form. If you download the form please return the completed form to the surgery.
Common questions & answers
Why are you asking patients for their contact details?
We would like to be able to contact patients and carers occasionally to ask them questions about the practice and how well we are doing to identify areas for improvement
Will my doctor see this information?
This information is purely to contact patients to ask them questions about the practice, how well we are doing and ensure changes that are being made are patient focused. If you doctor is responsible for making some of the changes in the practice they might see general feedback from patients.

How often will you contact me?
Not very often. We plan to contact our group four times a year.
What is a patient group/patient participation group?
This is a group of volunteer patients who are involved in making sure the practice provides the services its patients need.
