Patient Virtual Group
Would you like to have a say in how local health services are developed?
We are encouraging patients to give their views about how the practice is doing. We would like to be able to find out the opinions of as many patients as possible and are asking if people would like to provide their email addresses so we contact you by email every now and again to ask you a question or two.

Q Why are you asking people for their contact details?

Q How often will you contact me?

Q What is a patient representative group?
A This is a group of volunteer patients who are involved in making sure the surgery provides the services its patients need.
Q What if I no longer wish to be on the contact list or I leave the surgery?
