What is the PRG?
A small group of patients, our Patient Reference Group (PRG) meets regularly to discuss issues about our services. We, and they, will keep you informed about their activities through this website. Also, a Newsletter will be e-mailed to those who have provided their e-mail address. In addition, it will be available in hard copy in the Surgery waiting rooms, from our receptionists, and on this website.
The group’s members are drawn from a range of ages, ethnicities, occupations and lifestyles.
All registered patients over the age of 18 are invited to put their name forward for membership of the PRG. However, it is necessary to limit the number of members of the Group at any one time. Therefore, patients putting their names forward will be interviewed. Then they will be added to a list for future membership as vacancies occur.
All our patients are welcome to give their views in the comments section. So all are included. We value every opinion.
